There are many ways you can donate to the Youth Project. Although we have funders, we still rely on the generosity of the community in order to continue providing the programs and services we offer. We are a registered charity and can provide a charitable tax receipt for donations. Here are some ways to donate:
Canada Helps allows for lower fees for us when receiving donations. That way, more of your donation is able to be used to directly support local 2SLGBTQ+ youth.
A one time or annual gift of cash is always appreciated and goes directly into our programming. You can write a cheque or donate through Paypal. Every little bit helps no matter how small. We will provide a charitable tax receipt for your donation, a heartfelt thank you, and an annual update from the Youth Project so you can see how your gift was used.
Join the monthly giving program for a set amount each month. No amount is too small. This is a good way to spread out your giving. At the end of the year you will receive a charitable tax receipt for your gift. Contact us for more details.
You can purchase a book, film or other resources from our Amazon Wishlist, and the item will be sent directly to the YP! This helps us provide relevant reading material to youth, parents and educators, as well as support the ongoing work of our staff! You can check out the list here. (If sending us things via this wish list, please include your name/contact info so we can thank you directly!).
Each year we have a few fundraising events such as the barbecue at the annual Dykes vs. Divas softball game and our annual Auction. Come out and support us by attending these and other events.
We are always happy to accept gifts other than cash. Each year we look for items for our fundraising auction. If you are an artist, business owner, or community member and have something we can feature at our auction, your gift can go a long way. The auction is our largest fundraiser. We are often looking for other donation items that we need around the Youth Project. This could be furniture, books, DVDs, clothing, appliances, paint, etc. A charitable tax receipt can be provided for the value of the item. Here are some things were are looking for:
There is plenty of work to do around the Youth Project that requires someone with skills. Whether those skills are around graphic design or around plumbing, chances are we have a job that needs doing. If you have some time to give and are looking for a way to share check with us about opportunities. We are unable to provide a tax receipt for services and skills, but that doesn’t change the impact your gift will have on the work that we do at the Youth Project. The Youth Project is a registered charity with the Canadian Revenue Agency. Our charitable tax number is 865-991-913-RR0001
