The Clay-Union foundation is a 501c3 non-profit, and our mission is to help youth. We have 2-3 fundraising events each year, and donations make up the bulk of our budget. The Clay County commissioners fund the program, as well as donations from private, civic and social organizations.   

Local support is critical, and your monetary support means we can continue to reach youth and young adults.
