The YMCA Foundation celebrated its 10th anniversary last Wednesday (July 25, 2018) with a fundraiser at the Connell Homestead in Spencerville. Hosting the event were Sarah Jane and Richard Dumbrille.
The 100 tickets available for the event sold out quickly. The fundraiser which raised close to $15,000 featured a silent auction with art donated by the Beatty family.
Y CEO Diana Deakin-Thomas acknowledged the Y Foundation Board members – Richard Dumbrille, Paul Fournier and David Beatty – all three of whom had the foresight in 2008 to incorporate the YMCA Foundation with David and Anne Beatty as founding investors. The Foundation is here to serve our community through the YMCA long into the future – since inception, the foundation has had significant growth through investment and donations. They have two directed funds – one through the generosity of the Green Family Foundation and another recently formed fund – the Hugh Hart Aquatic Leadership Fund which will support aquatic leadership opportunities for youth each year.
The Foundation is important to the long-term health and stability of the YMCA in our community. Legacy giving creates a foundation for a healthy and vibrant future for our community.
