October 25, 2017, Beamsville ON: This fall, Convos Youth Zone became recognized as a Registered Charitable Organization by the CRA.
What does this mean?
· You can now receive donation receipts for your donations to Convos Youth Zone
· Just as before, all proceeds from Conversations Café continue to go to Convos Youth Zone and the programming that happens there
· Convos Youth Zone can continue to flourish as a safe and engaging place for youth in our community, and now we can bring more programming, food and assistance to our community’s youth
“As an organization, we could not be happier that the CRA has recognized us as a registered charity,” says Brad Cook, Director of Convos Youth Zone. “Our board of directors are excited about the possibilities this designation opens up in terms of financial support. Convos has been offering programs to local youth for the past five years, and we have seen many positive changes in the lives of the youth we serve. We eagerly anticipate the next five years as increased financial support will mean we can have an even greater impact in our community.”
