About Door-to-Door Fundraising

Our Door-to-Door program was designed to reach people in the communities where we are. Our fundraisers go house-to-house to inspire people to support our service men and women by ensuring no military family is left behind. Speaking to donors one-on-one allows donors to ask questions and learn more about our programs in a way that we could not offer without our partners. 

Service members sacrifice daily for our freedom. Relocations, deployments, and frequent training in the field present unique challenges for military families, impacting spousal employment opportunities, family bonding, and financial well-being. At times, they struggle to fully provide the basics for themselves or their families. 

Our sustaining donor community provides critical funds to create impact where it’s needed most: programs and services to address the unique challenges of military life. These critical services support whole-family wellbeing and include childcare, early learning, after-school and resiliency programs for school-age children, emergency assistance, and food security. 


Our Partner, Globalfaces Direct

Armed Services YMCA partners with Globalfaces Direct, one of the largest face-to-face fundraising services. In keeping with best practices for fundraising, our fundraisers are compensated through an hourly wage with no commission. They receive comprehensive training which allows them to speak on behalf of Armed Services YMCA about our work and fundraising programs.

Our fundraisers will invite you to take part in the Foundation’s monthly donation program and WILL NOT accept, nor ask for cash. We will accept void cheques for Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and Credit Cards to set up your monthly donations.

How the process works:

  • Our fundraiser will enter and submit your information into the secure tablet and then call into our Telephone Verification Center with the following numbers: 1-866-890-6095 or 919-256-6125/ 619-541-7819.
  • The agent on the phone will proceed to confirm your information on a secure recorded line and process your first donation on the spot!
  • Within 24-48 hours you will receive a Confirmation Email from The Armed Services YMCA noting your donation details.
