REASONS TO GIVE
STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY IS OUR CAUSE
The Y is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that works side-by-side with our neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. One of the ways we do that is by providing financial assistance through our Outreach Program to children, adults and families who may be unable to afford a membership or participation in our programs. The Y counts on the generous donations from the public to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate in our services.
When you give to the Y, you’re doing your part to strengthen our community—and a strong community is good for everyone. Whether you’re helping a child in need attend summer camp, giving someone the assistance they need to make a healthy change in their life, or contributing to the construction of your Y facility, your gift will let us continue to affect positive change in our region.
“When we joined the YMCA of Callaway County we didn't just receive a membership, we gained better health, more opportunities, and most of all long lasting friendships. The Y community has been with us through thick and thin and for that we are truly thankful. You can’t find that at just any gym.” -Mackenzie & Derek Ewing, YMCA Family Members
