The Issac Sterett Adventure Foundation is making tremendous strides towards unifying Owensboro’s nonprofit community. The Foundation is honored and excited to announce it has received an immeasurable gift of property, located at 1010 Allen Street in Owensboro, Kentucky.

What will be known as the “Center for Good Works” will be used to promote collaboration, partnership, and cost-sharing for nonprofit organizations in our community. The 52,000 square foot multi-use center will be utilized in a multitude of ways, with plans to offer event space, meeting rooms, conference rooms, classrooms, and more. The revenue generated through long-term lease opportunities and short-term rental of the space will be distributed back into the community through civic projects.

The vision of the Issac Sterett Adventure Foundation is to promote the well-being of our community through healthy life balance initiatives. The Foundation believes nurturing partnerships of nonprofits within the community is a simple way for everyone to work in tandem, rather than compete.“

This gift is beyond generous, and our board is carefully considering how the property can best serve the needs of Owensboro and the surrounding region. Our vision is to create a partnership with nonprofits to better serve the growing needs within our community and to stretch our resources through collaboration and cost-sharing,” says ISAF Founder, Katie Sterett.

The industrial chic structure was originally built in the 1900s, and began as a tobacco processing facility. In 2010, the building became the Center for Business and Research. This was the community’s first business incubator collaboration with public and private partners. In addition, the space was later the birthplace of the Owensboro Innovation Academy; a project-based learning collaboration between local school systems. The property was donated by Sally and Malcolm Bryant and family.“

The building’s rich history is an absolute inspiration for creating a new vision of good works in the nonprofit sector, and an honor for the Issac Sterett Adventure Foundation team,” says Sterett.
