In 2021 Anglican Foundation of Canada supporters in the Diocese of Nova Scotia were the most generous donors to the first Say Yes! to Kids campaign: raising more money than any other diocese. You helped to kickstart the Say Yes! to Kids movement and I am grateful.
Some of you have asked how you can support this year's campaign, so I want you to know about the four fundraising teams in your Diocese this year:
Christ Church, Amherst: Supporting unhoused youth through the launch of a Youth Navigation Fund and volunteer training program.
Nova Scotia & PEI ACW: Sponsoring Indigenous delegates to attend the Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth gathering in August 2023.
St. Paul’s, Halifax: Growing a program of out trips, socials, and retreats to help their youth build meaningful connections.
Cathedral Church of All Saints: Partnering with Ward 5 Neighbourhood Centre to raise funds for their Operation Summer Day Camp!
You can click on the links highlighted above to give to one or more of these teams!
And don't forget: for every $10 donated to the Diocese of Nova Scotia & PEI teams, $2 will support your diocesan Community Roots Day Camp which is building capacity for youth ministry leadership in communities across the Diocese. That's a win-win for everyone!
Please give generously to your Nova Scotia & PEI Say Yes! to Kids teams this year and help to grow a brighter future for young people, today!

P.S. You can also mail a cheque payable to the Anglican Foundation of Canada, with the name of the team you wish to support in the memo line to the address below. Or write "Nova Scotia & PEI" in the memo line and your donation will be shared with all four teams.
