make a difference in a young person's life

YOU can help us continue to make a meaningful impact on the lives of Kansas City’s young people by sponsoring a member with a monthly gift.

The actual cost to serve one child for a year is $3,000, yet we charge only $15 for an annual membership – and no child is ever turned away. Your gift, when combined with the commitment of others, helps ensure long-term sustainability of programs and services, allowing us to serve as a beacon of hope, stability and opportunity to young people in some of our community’s toughest neighborhoods.

The dollars you give monthly will change young lives.

  • School Supplies – At just $25 per month, you can provide one Club member access to school supplies necessary to complete homework and succeed in school.
  • Sports – $40 per month will provide one child access to the Clubs’ sports leagues and programming, including soccer, basketball, flag football, golf and more!
  • Nutrition – Your gift of $60 per month provides a nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner for one child, every day that they are in the Club!
  • Educational Programming – For $100 per month, you will provide educational programming for one child, including: public speaking, character and leadership, technology and arts!
  • One Full Year of Programming – Your gift of $250 per month will provide a full year of programming, supplies and meals for one Club member!
