REASONS TO GIVE
STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY IS OUR CAUSE
The Y is a powerful association of men, women and children of all ages, and from all walks of life, joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundation of community.
When you give back and support the Y, you continue to strength the foundation of our community. As the nation’s leading non-profit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y uses your gift to make a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood.
“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
The Y is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charity 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.
