Y Named Inaugural United Way Impact 100 Organization
The YMCA of Greater Kansas City is proud to be named an inaugural United Way Impact 100 organization.
This year, United Way of Greater Kansas City launched the Impact 100 to provide unrestricted funding to the 100 organizations they believe are addressing the most vital health and human service needs in our community. The Y will use this funding to help youth reach their fullest potential in before and after school programs, summer day camps and Head Start programs across the metro, as well as youth programs at our Linwood Y.
Every Impact 100 organization maintains a high bar of organizational accountability and effectiveness in terms of finances, governance and impact in the community. Organizations were evaluated on a variety of factors, which ultimately led to this initial Impact 100 being very diverse – in terms of geographic regions served, organizations led by people of color, focus areas and more.
This year’s impact 100 organizations cover the following domains: child welfare, healthcare access, food security, housing and financial stability, positive youth development and early childhood development. Learn more about Impact 100.
