Financial Assistance


Here at the YMCA, we believe that everyone in our community should have the opportunity to learn, grow & thrive regardless of their financial circumstances. Our Financial Assistance Plan provides financial help in order to give individuals and families the option to belong to the Y and participate in our life-changing programs & services. 

Our Financial Assistance Plan offers financial assistance for membership on a sliding scale based on your household’s income. Individuals with special circumstances, such as job loss or other financial challenges, are also encouraged to apply for assistance.

How to apply:

  • Download a Financial Assistance Application, or pick up a copy from your local branch.

  • Complete the application in its entirety & return to your local branch along with your most recent tax return or proof of income for the last 30 days.

  • One of our Branch Directors will meet with you one-on-one to discuss your options. Based on the application information you provided, he or she will inform you of the amount of assistance that the YMCA is able to provide you.


Visit or contact your local branch for more information.​
