Our June Match Campaign was a huge success, and it’s all thanks to you!

At the beginning of June, we set out on an important goal leading into summer. Within the month, we wanted to raise at least $100,000 – because every dollar up to that amount would be matched by our amazing community partners, Coast Capital Savings. What an incredible opportunity to leverage their generosity and inspire others to donate funds to help us provide unconditional love and support for our youth!

30 days later and the results are in… we did it! Thanks to many donors from the community, we managed to raise enough for Coast Capital to match the full $100,000.

Halfway through the campaign, we even had an anonymous donor add an additional $25,000 to the matching challenge. And we were able to raise that much too – a total of over $125,000 raised, and doubled, thanks to you.

So, from the bottom of our hearts, “thank you!”. We are so humbled by the generosity of the community and the love that you show to the youth who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in difficult situations on the street.

A special thank you to Coast Capital Savings for stepping up and being our lead sponsor for this matching campaign. Thank you, too, to the anonymous donor that added on additional funds to the challenge.

With what we raised, we can go into the summer months ready to serve kids in need. As you may know, summertime is quite a busy season for us. Many young people decide to flee places of violence and abuse while the weather is warmer and drier.

So once again, thank you. We are only able to continue serving homeless and at-risk youth through the generosity of members in the community, like you, who deeply care about fighting the crisis of homelessness.
