YMCAs are vital charitable organizations that want all people to feel welcome regardless of their personal circumstances. Perhaps its job loss, an extended illness, divorce- or any number of unforeseen situations – that cause an individual or a family to re-evaluate their involvement at the Y. It’s in these most stressful times that the Y can be most helpful in filling the gaps until they are back on their feet.
The Y provides financial assistance for Y membership and program fees to ensure that all people have equal access to Y programs and services regardless of ability to pay.
We are able to provide this financial assistance through the generous donations of our members and friends of the Y through our annual campaign. If fees prove to be an obstacle to your Y participation, please inquire at your local Y branch.
