Financial Assistance

The YMCA welcomes all who wish to participate and believes that no one should be denied access to the Y based on their ability to pay. Through our financial aid program, the YMCA provides assistance to youth, adults and families based on individual needs and circumstances.

Determining assistance amounts is handled by the YMCA in a fair and consistent manner. Every YMCA member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive a scholarship. YMCA members can feel confident knowing they are a part of an organization that cares greatly for the well-being of all people, and is committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.


  • The YMCA requests that individuals and families reapply annually, with updated documentation.
  • Membership fees are subject to change when you reapply.
  • If you do not reapply at the time requested, your membership will expire.
  • For questions, please call our Membership Director at 405-273-4386.
