The Y is a charitable organization making a significant impact on the communities we serve by distributing more than $500,000 worth of free and subsidized programs that are available and open to EVERYONE. Through the YMCA’s Annual Support Campaign and its generous donors, we offer financial aid to ensure that no one is turned away from a Y program or service due to an inability to pay.
As the leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y works side-by-side with our neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
Signing up for Financial Assistance is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
