About YMCA of Greater Vancouver:
Founded in 1886, the YMCA of Greater Vancouver (YMCA Vancouver) is a social services charity formally known as The Young Men’s Christian Association of Greater Vancouver. YMCA Vancouver operates across the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia and has three focus areas: helping children and families thrive, promoting healthy living, and fostering belonging and connection (to reduce social isolation). It aims to strengthen communities by helping kids, adults and seniors reach their full potential.
YMCA of Greater Vancouver offers programs at 185 locations in cities such as Vancouver, Chilliwack, Surrey, Coquitlam and Richmond, among others. The charity’s programs include aquatic activities, overnight and day camps, child care, child and family development, sports and fitness facilities, employment services, education and training services, immigration services, health and fitness, and youth engagement. YMCA Vancouver served 120,000 people in F2015 and aims to double this number by 2022.
In April 2016, YMCA Vancouver launched its $140m “What Really Matters” capital campaign. Through this fundraising initiative, YMCA Vancouver plans to build four new YMCA facilities in Surrey, South Vancouver, Chilliwack and Coquitlam.
YMCA Greater Vancouver is a big-cap charity with donations of $5.1m in F2015. Administrative costs are 7% of revenues and fundraising costs are 11% of donations. $0.18 of every donated dollar goes toward overhead costs, which falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. The charity’s funding reserves of $19.6m can cover only 55% of annual program costs, indicating a funding need.
In F2015, YMCA Greater Vancouver transferred its estate assets, with a book value of $31.8m, to the YMCA of Greater Vancouver Properties Foundation. The transferred properties included the Robert Lee YMCA and Langara Family YMCA in Vancouver, the Tong Louie Family YMCA in Surrey, Camp Elphinstone, and the Healthy Heart Buildings in New Westminster.
This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by the YMCA of Greater Vancouver. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
