Your Impact

Now, more than ever, our communities need the Y.

And, now more than ever, your Y needs you.

As a charity, it is our goal to ensure that our programs and services are accessible to everyone, no matter what their financial circumstances are. Each gift to the YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce makes a positive and tangible difference for people across Grey Bruce.  

At your Y we think opportunity is something everyone deserves.

We are committed to showing up for our communities where and how they need us most. You might not have known about this part of your YMCA, but you’ve helped create something unstoppable.

Thank you. What you’re really giving is a turning point in someone’s life.
