We rely on our community's support to provide services for youth. YOU has many opportunities for community members to lead in fundraising efforts.
Host a Fundraising Event
Events are a great way to raise awareness and funds for the vital programs we offer youth in London & Middlesex County. The possibilities are endless for what type of events community members can organize: bake sales, sporting tournaments, concerts, auctions, galas… the list goes on!
If you are interested in hosting an event in support of YOU please contact Jamie Lee Arseneau, Community Engagement Manager, at JamieLeeA@you.ca / 519-432-1112 ext. 351.
Do you have a team, school group, or club that has a fundraising goal to meet? Consider fundraising with YOU and our Mushed by YOU products! Fundraising with YOU means your group or school will earn 24% back on each jar sold, with the remainder of funds raised going back to YOU to support youth programming.
To express your interest in fundraising with Mushed, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
YOU Campaigns and Committees
We are always looking for fundraising volunteers to engage in our Breakfast Committee and Capital Campaign Cabinet. These engaged volunteers act as ambassadors for YOU and make fundraising asks in support of the organization.
If you are interested in volunteering in a fundraising capacity please contact Jamie Lee Arseneau, Community Engagement Manager, at JamieLeeA@you.ca / 519-432-1112 ext. 351.
