Financial Assistance

What is the YMCA’S Financial Assistance program?

At the Y, we believe everyone deserves the chance to experience holistic wellness — in spirit, mind, and body. The Financial Assistance program, supported in part by our Annual Campaign, provides families, children and adults with reduced rates based on income so they may obtain quality Membership, Child Care, Youth Programs, and Health and Wellness services.

Who is Eligible and How is the Amount Determined?

Anyone is welcome to apply for our Financial Assistance program. The amount of assistance granted is based on the application process and review of the required documentation provided by the applicant. Our Financial Assistance program reduces fees but does not eliminate them. The Y believes a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed when our Financial Assistance recipients contribute to the cost of their YMCA involvement.
