Invest in Mission

Join us in our Y mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Your support allows us to build programs and opportunities in this community, and our capacity to do so expands with each dollar we raise. For more than 122 years, the Y has been helping the Owensboro community - one senior, one parent, one child at a time.

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. It's a fact that strong, stable, secure families form a solid foundation for the growth and success of our community.

Throughout Daviess County, countless people know the YMCA. But there's so much more to our Y than one might think. From exercise to education, from basketball to volunteerism, from preschool to preventive health, the Y doesn't just strengthen our bodies. It strengthens our community.

The Y is so much more than a gym. We touch the lives of nearly one out of every nine people in our community. We've been proud to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive. The Y is determined to develop young people, encourage healthy living, and do what's right.


$5 a month for 12 months could help teach three children to swim, helping them to gain confidence, as well as safety and rescue skills that will last a lifetime.

$10 a month for 12 months could help send one child to the Afterschool Program for up to 6 weeks, where they will have the opportunity to be tutored during homework time by our trained staff and engage in healthy activities.

$15 a month for 12 months could help provide a single parent and his/her children to join the Y for half a year and use the facility and its programs as a way to bond and grow closer as a family.

$20 a month for 12 months could help provide two children attend Holiday Camp during holidays or snow days for 13 days each, so their parents are still able to go to work, while also having their children participate in fun and healthy activities.

$25 a month for 12 months could help a senior citizen with fourteen months of membership in order to strengthen their bodies and socialize with friends, both old and new.

$40 a month for 12 months could help provide a family with children with a year membership to help them come closer and grow as a family, while also maintaining a healthy lifestyle in the process.

Even a ONE-TIME FEE OF ANY AMOUNT that you are willing to donate will have a positive impact on the lives of those who benefit from our annual campaign!

Every year, we host several events to support the YMCA's Investment in Mission. This keeps the Y open to all, regardless of their ability to pay membership or program fees.
