Kaptyn Family Endowment Fund
York Region Family Building a Healthier Community

Family Services York Region is excited to honour John Kaptyn through a lasting legacy to commemorate the difference he is making in our community.

Family Services York Region received $400K to support its mission to provide York Region communities with professional counselling, group and outreach services. “From our specialized domestic violence programs, to our therapeutic services to children, youth and families who have experienced trauma, these funds will have a major impact on those, who might otherwise not receive the help that they so urgently need. We are extremely grateful to the Kaptyn family for choosing Family Services York Region. The establishment of the Kaptyn Family Endowment Fund through this very generous donation will help us to honour John Kaptyn, through services and programs to our most vulnerable clients.”

Family Services York Region is a not for profit, Counselling Agency providing Individual, Couple, Family and Group Counselling, as well as Prevention, Outreach and Support Services. Funded by United Way, Family Services York Region is accredited by Service Canada and is staffed by professional clinicians trained in a variety of areas such as social work, psychology, family therapy and art therapy. Family Services York Regions provides culturally sensitive services to promote healing and understanding, resolve differences and achieve the fullest development of individual growth and human potential. We believe in family in all its diversity.

Markham, ON (July 14, 2008) – The Kaptyn family of York Region has made a major investment in our community’s health care and well-being with donations totaling $3 million to the Markham Stouffville Hospital Foundation, the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation and Family Services York Region.

The donations will build a lasting legacy in memory of the late John Kaptyn, who passed away this past December. John Kaptyn was a developer and family man who lived in Richmond Hill and worked in Markham. The Kaptyn family resides in York Region and designated the gifts to the three beneficiaries on behalf of John Kaptyn.
