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.

Begin Your Legacy With Us 
To help get started on your plans and legacy, you can use FreeWill, an online tool that guides you through the process of creating a legally valid will or trust. It’s easy to use, accessible online, and it can be completed in 20 minutes. You can use this resource on its own – you can use it to document your wishes before finalizing your plans with an attorney. 

Have you already included a gift to the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties in your will or trust? Please fill out this form to to let us know! We would love to thank you for your generosity. 

Non-probate Assets 
Do you have an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any other assets not included in your will? If so, these are called non-probate assets and you must plan your beneficiaries for them separately. Use this online tool to make your plans and designate us as a beneficiary of one or more of these assets. 

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
