Corporate Donations

Ken Spencer and Judy Gale have been a lifeline for youth across the Lower Mainland. Ken has been pivotal in the growth of Yo Bro | Yo Girl. Sadly, Ken passed away earlier this year after a long and courageous battle with cancer. However, his legacy lives on through the countless youth that have been positively impacted and changed their lives for the better. The Spencer Creo Foundation has supported Yo Bro | Yo Girl (YBYG) Youth Initiative to become the organization it is today, helping thousands of youth across the Lower Mainland. It is with great honour that I would like to announce that the Francis Family Foundation has generously offered to match donations made to Yo Bro | Yo Girl Youth Initiative in honour of Ken Spencer between now and the end of October! (up to a maximum of $25,000)
