Making a difference!
Medeba was founded in 1952, and in 1955 became a not-for-profit organization and a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency. Medeba is a Christian organization and its ministry and programs for young people are funded by both user fees and donations. Our general operating expenses are mostly covered by user fees and supplemented by donations to our General Fund. Capital expenses, like constructing buildings or developing activity and program areas, are completely funded by donations. All excess revenue after expenses is invested back into the organization.
We rely on and are grateful to the friends of Medeba, who support us in a number of different ways - from giving financially to volunteering their time. Every year, there are many people who work and give in order to make a difference at Medeba. We consider them partners in the mission to change young lives!
We invite you to consider partnering with us and invest in young people through giving to Medeba.
