Financial Assistance

Income-Based Membership and Programming

The YMCA is for everyone! Our programs, services and membership enable kids to realize their potential, offer ways for families to have fun and be active together, and empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body.

Our YMCA works hard every day to ensure everyone has the ability to learn, grow and thrive. We offer financial assistance and scholarships so that everyone can take part in our programs and services, regardless of their ability to pay.


Y Match Membership Assistance

If you are unable to pay for a YMCA Membership, you may choose to apply for a Y Match Membership. Funding for Y Match memberships is made possible through community donations to the YMCA. This assistance is available, within the limits of our resources, to members that provide complete documentation showing their inability to pay the full member rate.

By completing and bringing in the worksheet and applications below, along with all the required financial information, we can determine if you qualify for a 50% reduced membership rate. The Y Match Membership applications are reviewed on-site by the Member Services Team (may take 15-20 minutes for approval). In some special cases with unique family/medical situations, a personalized membership rate may be determined based on a sliding fee scale. In these cases, applications will be forwarded onto our Y Match Committee and take take up to two weeks for approval.

Note: Members who do not wish to provide their financial information may join at any time at the full membership rate. Incomplete applications are not reviewed.


Camp and Program Assistance

If you are unable to pay for a YMCA program or camp, you may choose to apply for Camp and Program Financial Assistance. This assistance is available, within the limits of our resources, to those that provide complete documentation showing their inability to pay the full rate. Participants are required to contribute to the cost of their YMCA camp or program fee – as a result, participants develop a sense of caring, belonging, and ownership. 

Please complete the below application thoroughly and accurately. You must provide verification of your income – all records will be kept confidential. Please only submit one application per family/household.

Child Care Assistance

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to succeed. That’s why we offer multiple resources to help families pay for child care expenses. To qualify for financial assistance, you must be currently enrolled or in the process of enrolling at one of our child care programs. Financial assistance is designed to help cover expenses based on your family size and gross income per your household.
