Ways to give

When challenges arise, the Y – and donors like you – steps in. After over 25 years of serving the Southeastern Indiana area, the Y understands what our community needs to be its best. Working with generous donors like you, the Y provides everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and contribute to a better community. Everything the Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better.


The Y is a positive force in this community.

Together, we take on the challenges that shape Southeastern Indiana's future. From providing quality preschool education for all children, teaching healthy habits for a lifetime, or giving people the chance to strengthen our community through volunteering, everything the Y does is in service of building a better us.

Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. YMCA donors, volunteers, members, and partners like you make the difference.


Volunteering is one of the essential ways the Y engages people and helps them to be healthy, confident, and connected to others. The role of volunteers distinguishes the Y as a place where everyone can take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change in the community.

At the Y, volunteer development is everyone’s job. A strong partnership between volunteers and staff is essential to operating effective and cause-driven programs.

To achieve that partnership, our Y prepares for and manages environments in which staff and volunteers work together in clearly defined roles to advance the Y’s cause. This requires everyone’s commitment to provide meaningful opportunities for volunteers that match their interests and to ensure the operational and financial support to engage, manage, and recognize program volunteers.
