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.

At the Y, active older adult members experience a strong sense of belonging and a network of friends who provide support for sustained health and well-being. Through fun, safe and engaging programs, activities and events, members increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement while building relationships and celebrating the success and milestones of others. The newest equipment or the best meal plan can’t help you if it doesn’t fit your unique circumstances–our programming for active older adults takes into account takes into account your dietary needs, physical ability and schedule, and brings you together with other active older adults so you can meet new friends and build a community.
