Giving & Annual Campaign

At the Y, we believe in giving back.

Whether it’s through time, talents, energy or funds, when you give back, you help strengthen our community. The YMCA is a cause-driven organization dedicated to lifting up youth, promoting good health and creating stronger, more connected communities. Join our cause and make a lasting impact!


The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. As cause driven, not-for-profit organization, the YMCA is able to fulfill our mission of enhancing the spirit, mind and body of all through the generosity of our members and donors.


It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve. Locally, the Y has opportunities for volunteers to enrich their lives and the lives of those around them. We strive to make volunteering a rewarding experience.

AmeriCorps Program
AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a big difference in your life and in the lives of those around you. It’s a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others and meeting critical needs in our community. The YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties has numerous AmeriCorps members completing terms of service mentoring at-risk youth, combating youth obesity, and keeping seniors active in addition to other roles. Each member receives a monthly living allowance, and upon successful completion of their term, will qualify for an education award.

Community BuildingBrighter-Futures
Brighter Futures is an initiative of the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties which brings together professionals under the age of 40 for networking, volunteering, and professional development! Membership is an annual contribution to the Partner of Youth Annual Campaign of $100.
