Together we create a strong Knox County
For 107 years, the YMCA of Vincennes has responded to the needs and challenges of our community. The issues children, seniors and families face may have changed over time, but what remains the same is our commitment to strengthening our community.
Our Annual Campaign makes healthier kids, happier families and a better community possible. Every dollar raised provides Y membership and program financial assistance for people who need it most.
Gifts to the Y make swim lessons, basketball teams or camp a reality for kids. Seniors can receive a hot, nutritious lunch for $1 through our Bettye J. McCormick Senior Center.
Chairman’s Round Table
Gifts given to our YMCA as a part of our Annual Campaign that are $1,000 and more which receive special recognition.
Through gifts and commitments to the YMCA Endowment, Heritage Club members perpetuate the Y’s positive influence on future generations of families. A planned charitable gift may be made in a variety of ways to insure the financial stability of the Y in the coming years.
We believe in making meaningful change
We believe that no one should be turned away due to inability to pay. In 2019 our Y:
-More youth, adults and families we able to learn, grow, and thrive because of $100,000 given in financial assistance for membership and program assistance.
– Provided over 84,000 low cost rides on VanGo Public Transportation
– Older adults were served 15,000 nutritious, affordable meals while staying active and independent.
– 150 kids from Kindergarten through 5th grade, created memories and learning experiences during Summer Day Camp.
We believe in making a difference
Every year, hundreds of volunteers contribute their time to our Y. Over 100 employees work to bring our cause to life. Thousands of community members visit our Y to build healthy spirit, mind and body. Your gift is a crucial part of making the promise come true.
