The NSYMCA provides financial assistance for children, teens, adults, and families who are facing financial hardships.

If you are looking for financial assistance for YMCA programs, we offer that too.

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.

How do I apply?

  1. Download a financial assistance application here.
  2. Complete the form, and attach a copy of the required financial documents.
  3. Return the application and supporting documents to the YMCA.
