Welcome to the YFC Canada Foundation

The purpose of the Foundation is to support Youth for Christ / Youth Unlimited Chapters in Canada. This provides a donor the option of designating a gift which can be held in trust by the Foundation and designated to the ministry as requested by the donor.

For example, a donor in Edmonton Alberta, may wish to give a gift of $100,000 to the Edmonton YFC Chapter but wants the gift to be spread out over a 10 year period. There is a discussion with the donor concerning the gift and an agreement by the Foundation before accepting the gift. If accepted, the gift is held in trust and monies will be distributed according to the wishes of the donor to that Chapter.

If you are considering leaving the Youth for Christ Canada Foundation in your Will, your legal advisor will need to know the following information:
