Bears Assisting Youth Program

The Bears Assisting Youth (BAY) program provides opportunities for Ozarks area youth and community groups to attend Missouri State athletics events free of charge. The BAY program is supported entirely by the charitable efforts of private donors and corporate sponsors.

How it works

Your participation in the BAY program begins with purchasing tickets to your choice of these Missouri State sports:

These tickets will be donated to a charity, youth group or community group in your name.

About the ticket purchase

The purchasing of BAY program tickets is considered a gift to Missouri State athletics and is 100% tax deductible. Missouri State will recognize your participation in the program during the entire season of which you participate.

How the tickets are used

Your tickets will be donated to community groups, like the Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Town of Missouri and many more.

Each group will have an opportunity to send kids to experience and enjoy the atmosphere of college athletics and to learn about leadership, teamwork and other positive attributes.
