$22,000 Goal

Our CYO We Give Catholic Goal is $22,000 to serve 22,000 Children and families in 2022!

With your help our CYO family can do it together!

CYO makes memories for children.
Over 20,000 children play 11 CYO sports in 8 counties across NE Ohio every year.  St. Dominic girls' soccer team has been together since 3rd grade and finished their 8th grade season as champions!  CYO is about FUN, FRIENDS, AND FAMILY!

CYO has given away more than $400,000 to CYO programs and families in need through the Bishop Roger Gries Good Shepherd Fund. Your generosity makes that happen. Children need to know that they are welcome and belong on CYO teams.  Please give more so that we can serve more children and families in CYO.

CYO families that struggle financially need assistance to purchase practice uniforms – shorts, socks, shoes, a t-shirt, and game uniforms. Your support through We Give Catholic helps us to provide these necessities to CYO programs in need.  

CYO has never turned a child away due to a lack of financial resources in our 85 years of existence. Your We Give Catholic contribution will make sure that our Member CYO programs don’t turn away any children either. With your support we can do more for more children.

CYO is part of the Catholic Charities family of programs and services. CYO teaches children our Catholic Charities values – Dignity of Person, Concern for the Poor, Justice, Hope and Stewardship. 

CYO received the university of Notre Dame National Champion for Children Award as one of the best youth sports programs in the United States!  Your support strengthens our CYO Coaches Development Programs, our CYO Football Safety Program, our CYO Officials Academy, our Incident Management Program, and our CYO Championship Tournaments. 

 $100        Provides First Aid Kits and Site safety supplies 
                    for one of over 100 CYO Sites and Venues.
 $250       Provides registration fees for 5 children to
                   participate in CYO Cross Country or Track.


 $500       Provides basketballs and supplies for 2 CYO
                   Basketball Teams.
 $1000      Provides Training and Certification for 30
Coaches for all sports.

We need your financial gift to CYO on We Give Catholic Day, November 30, 2021!  We Need YOU!! We will use your contributions received to purchase first aid kits and site safety supplies, continued coaches training, sports equipment, and help athletes and families in need!
