August 17th is National Non-Profit Day, which commemorates all the ways non-profits make an impact. We’re celebrating early, because we can’t wait to express our gratitude for the many ways our community makes a difference through KYC. THANK YOU to our supporters, donors, staff, and volunteers for striving to achieve our vision that Together We Thrive. From community behavioral health support, older adult services, to community health programs, KYC is grateful for all you do to ensure community members have access to safe and equitable care year round.
How You Make an Impact
There are many ways you can support KYC in honor of National Non-Profit Day and throughout the year. You make this work successful!
Ensure Healthy Futures for Our Community With a General Donation
Each year, more than 15,000 individuals turn to KYC for help. From youth in crisis to seniors at risk of malnutrition, KYC’s teams respond with compassion and care to ensure our community’s safety and wellbeing. But the truth is, we can’t do this work alone.
Every dollar donated to KYC goes directly to ensuring our ability to respond when people need us most and YOU decide what work is most meaningful to you by designating your gift. Whether you’re called to invest in youth working toward healthy futures, mental health programs, assistance to seniors, or any of our 35 programs, your donation changes lives and saves lives at KYC — and we couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you.
