The YMCA provides financial assistance (FA) to youth, families and individuals who do not have the resources to pay the full membership or program fee. Scholarships are provided for qualifying applicants within our means. The YMCA Scholarship Program is supported by our Annual Campaign, contributions received from the United Way, and the YMCA’s annual fundraisers.
What you need to know before applying:
- Applications without income documentation (1040 tax form) will be denied.
- Please allow 5 business days for application processing.
- All documentation provided will be shredded upon determination of FA award.
- FA reduces fees; it does not eliminate them.
- FA is granted on 12 month basis & must be renewed prior to exp date.
- Delinquent payments will result in revocation of FA award.
- Membership & program fees are subject to change.
- Some programs are excluded from assistance or limited in the amount of assistance we can offer.
