Creation of the Youth Diversion Program Sustainability Fund

I am proud to announce that Alliance has created and contributed to The Youth Diversion Program Sustainability Fund. The Youth Diversion Program is a registered charitable organization that assists over 1,400 promising youth in communities across Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox and Addington counties. The organization has close to 200 volunteers and is committed to assisting youth to develop the skills necessary to overcome the challenges of adolescence.

As a board member from 2000 to 2008, I saw the inner workings of The Youth Diversion Program including the amazing staff, the incredible work they do and the benefit they provide to our youth and our community. As a board member it was always frustrating to see the funding sources come and go, increase and decrease.  The Youth Diversion Program Sustainability Fund has been designed to ensure resources will be consistently available by providing the organization with a perpetual source of revenue for its operating budget. The fund is housed at the Community Foundation of Kingston and Area, and proceeds from the fund will be given to the Youth Diversion Program yearly.

Donations to the fund can occur at any time with the goal being to maximize the capital in the fund in order to generate solid annual revenue for The Youth Diversion Program.

  • You can donate on line at as a one-time gift, or on a monthly basis.
  • Others have chosen to leave a legacy by dedicating part of their estate or life insurance to the fund, thereby reducing the tax implications for his/her heirs.
  • Third party fundraising events can also be dedicated to growing the fund.  Information on third party events is available from The Youth Diversion Program.

If you wish to contribute to this fund and be involved from the very beginning please contact Brad French @ 613-546-1141 ( or Daren Dougall @ 613-548-4535 x223 (
