Thanks to funds from our Annual Campaign, we provide financial assistance for children, teens, adults and families who cannot afford the full cost of a Y membership or YMCA programs.

We use a sliding fee scale based on total household income and the number of household members. We require supporting documentation to verify household size and income, and we consider special circumstances when providing assistance.

Recipients are expected to be responsible for a percentage of the membership cost and/or the program fees. Qualification for YMCA financial assistance for membership is reviewed every year.

How to apply for Income-Based Assistance:

  1. Go to our Program page and apply to the Income-Based Assistance program or click here.
  2. Staff member will process the application within 2 weeks and notify the applicants.
