ROY Fund-raising

and matching funds

Just like well-cared-for homes, successful towns restore and renovate. Youngsville has been invited to be a part of the Community Foundation of Warren County’s online Warren Gives fundraising event. Now is the time that Youngsville residents can pull together and show that they collectively work together for the community. ROY asked residents to please pledge support to the community of Youngsville. All proceeds will go towards next year’s Main Street improvements.

Railroad Street construction has begun and work is expected to move into East Main in the next year. Since funding these projects ensures preservation and well-being while reducing the risk of infrastructure failures for future generations Revitalization of Youngsville is asking for your help.

How it works: Pledge your support using Visa or MasterCard to Revitalization of Youngsville Community Fund at on Wednesday, May 8 from 8 am to 8 pm. The Community Foundation of Warren County will be accepting and tracking Youngsville’s donations. A percentage of your contributions will be matched from the Community Foundation. After they match a percentage of the amount received, they present ROY with check.

Your contribution will go to match federal and state grants. Also, it will help pay for water and sewer line improvements.

The goal is to raise $20,000.

If you don’t have a computer you may go to the public library for help.
