Social Responsibility

Providing support and inspiring action in our communities


Financial Assistance

Everyone belongs at the Ohio Valley YMCA regardless of their age, background or income.  In an effort to ensure that anyone everyone is eligible to obtain a membership, participate in programs or attend classes, the Ohio Valley YMCA grants financial assistance to individuals based on their demonstrated ability to pay.

Veteran Rates

To show our support for veterans and their families, we offer special veteran pricing. Our nation's veterans and their families have dedicated so much in service to our country that we are proud to offer our resources at the YMCA to those looking to refocus their effort in improving mind, body, and spirit. 


YMCA Build-A-Champ memberships are intended to reward kids in need of membership opportunities. Application may be based on financial need, family hardships or improved academic/behavioral performance. 

Active Older Adult Engagement

We believe that providing older adults with opportunities to focus on their physical health, as well as social and mental well-being, plays an important role in keeping them as vital, active members in our communities. By partnering with health and wellness brands, such as Tivity (Silver Sneakers) and Optum Be-Well, we are able to offer memberships at no-additional cost to a large number of seniors in our community, and provide them with programming to improve their quality of life.

Community Involvement

As the leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y works side-by-side with our neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.  To do our important work, the Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders.

When you are involved with the Y, you help bring about lasting personal and social change.  Whether you want to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve your or your family’s health and well-being, or give back and support your neighbors, your involvement with the Y will positively impact those in your community.
