C.Y.O. Associate Members - Community Partners

Many community leaders, friends and C.Y.O. alumni are associate members who believe in the C.Y.O.’s mission. A strong associate membership conveys to local governments, funders and other members of our Catholic community that the C.Y.O. is valued and worthy of their continued support.

To maintain the C.Y.O.’s charitable donation status, and to be recognized as a not-for-profit agency, government regulations and our agency’s by-laws mandate us to have membership donors who participate in the mission of our agency.

What will you receive when you become an Associate Member of the C.Y.O.:

  • Regular updates on our agency’s activities and programs,
  • Invitation to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and complimentary dinner,
  • The right to vote on activities and the direction of the Catholic Youth Organization.


We need your help!
There is no doubt that during the past number of years the economy has provided some of the most demanding and anxious times that our agency has experienced.  Although we have been confronted by a number of challenges, it has not deterred us from fulfilling our faith and mission to serve the children, youth and their families in our community.

However, we do need some help. For a number of reasons, our Associate Membership base has declined and in order to maintain our charitable donation status and to be recognized as a not-for-profit agency, government regulations and our agency’s by-laws mandate us to have membership donors.
