Financial Assistance for Membership

The YMCA of the Triangle provides financial assistance for children, teens, adults and families who cannot afford the full cost of a Y membership.

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. Qualification for YMCA financial assistance for membership is reviewed every two years.

How do i apply?

  1. Download a financial assistance application.
  2. Complete the form, and attach a copy of your most recent tax return and/ or required financial documents.
  3. Return the application and supporting documents to your YMCA.
