Financial Assistance

Building Bridges

We’re committed to providing quality programs and services to everyone in the community. Thanks to the support of our generous donors, our Annual Campaign raises more than $1.2 Million to fund our Building Bridges programs. Through the Income-based Rate Scale and additional Bridges financial aid, we are able to make the YMCA accessible to all.

Income-based Rate Scale

Through the income-based rate system for membership and Day Camp, we have designed a scale to fit each individual’s and family’s financial situation.  Income verification is required to register as a member or program participant.

Additional financial assistance, based on demonstrated ability to pay, and the YMCA’s ability to fund the amount requested, will be made available. Applications are available at the Member Service Desk at each YMCA. All financial assistance information is kept confidential.
