Community Donation Programs

Reopening of Former YMCA Facility

The Town of Yarmouth has established a trust fund that will serve to allow individuals and businesses to make donations towards reopening the facility formerly operated by the YMCA at 275 Main Street, Yarmouth. As the community rallies together to find the money needed to reopen this important facility, the trust fund will serve as a single, safe way to donate for everyone wishing to contribute to the cause.

The trust fund established by the Town of Yarmouth is for the specific purpose of supporting the reopening of the facility at 275 Main Street, formerly operated by the Yarmouth YMCA. Funds may be used for repairs to the building or other expenses deemed necessary for reopening. In the event the facility cannot reopen, the Town will return the funds to those individuals, companies or groups that provide sufficient information to the Town for the return of the funds. Should sufficient information not be provided to return the funds, the Town reserves the right to use the funds for a similar purpose.

Tax receipts will be provided for amounts over $20. Please note: receipts will be issued only at the time the funds are actually used as per trust fund statement.

 

Community Asset Donation Program

The Town of Yarmouth has created a Community Asset Donation Program Policy whereby individuals and organizations may make a general donation to the Community Asset Donation Program or a donation for a specific community asset. Any community asset can be a tribute to an individual or group. A community asset is considered to be, but not limited to, a tree, bench, work of art, structure, etc. The purpose of the Program is to provide a means to recognize and honour others through a lasting tribute. The contributions made through this program will also benefit the parks, urban forest, green spaces, the natural environment and the community as a whole. See the link below for additional information, donor agreement and a list of assets that can be purchased.
