 About Financial Assistance


Financial Assistance   

The Y is committed to helping everyone achieve their potential. Financial assistance, to the extent possible, is available for those needing assistance in paying for the full cost of a YMCA program or membership.* Please ask for a confidential scholarship application at the Member Services desk at any branch. All Y members receive the same membership benefits, regardless of scholarship assistance.

*Eligibility: Financial assistance is available to anyone based on family income, number of household members, and the availability of Y funds. It is provided fairly and openly on a first come, first served basis.
