Options for those who want to lead and serve

Olathe’s civic and community groups span a history of service to our community of over 100 years.

Membership in a civic or community group (a nonprofit) is important for several reasons.

  1. It provides a voice: Being a member of a nonprofit gives you a voice in the group’s decision-making processes. You have the ability to provide feedback, make suggestions, and help shape the group’s direction.
  2. It fosters community: Membership in a nonprofit can foster a sense of community and belonging. You may have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share similar values, interests, and passions.
  3. It supports the organization’s mission: Nonprofits rely on the support of their members to achieve their mission. Membership dues and contributions help fund programs and services.
  4. It provides access to resources: Members may have access to resources such as training and development opportunities, networking events, and other benefits.
  5. It can have a broader impact: By supporting a nonprofit through membership, you can contribute to the greater good and make a positive impact in our community and beyond.

Finding a group that matches with your interest and passion (maybe even more than one) is how you bloom where you are planted. Joining a group can provide you with a sense of purpose, community, and impact. It can also help support the group’s mission and contribute to positive social change.
