Current Fundraising Events

The Foundation holds fundraising events to help pay for the annual upkeep of the three Houses of Hope and to raise awareness in the community about the important work the foundation does for youth at risk.

Funds raised also support youth scholarships and activities.

The Brome Missisquoi Youth Foundation always needs new volunteers to help out with its fundraising events.  If you are interested in getting behind a good cause and working with other people who care about at-risk youth then please contact us at

Please spread the word about the important work that BMYF does for local youth at risk.

The Bridge Luncheon takes place on a Friday afternoon in the fall at the Brome Lake community center.  About 100 people attend the event which includes prizes, and the choice of duplicate or contract bridge, ma jong or scrabble, with wine available.  The event generates approximately $5,000 a year for the foundation.

Christmas Wreaths Fundraising

Holiday Wreath Sale

Sue Scott, a former board member, initiated this fundraiser many years ago.  Volunteers gather for a day,  in a generous donor’s barn for the last few years,  to make and deliver approximately 200 wreaths that are sold in the community.   It makes for a fun day being creative for a good cause. The event generates approximately $5,000 a year for the foundation.
