The Family Y Financial Assistance Policy
The Family Y feels strongly that the YMCA is for everyone. No one will be turned away because of their inability to pay, subject to qualification and the availability of funds. Our mission is to serve the people of the CSRA community. To make our programs and services affordable and accessible to all, The Family Y offers financial assistance to those who qualify.
A Y membership or program scholarship is not a handout, but a helping hand. The YMCA is here for people of all walks of life – when things are OK and when there are problems. Most people can usually afford the quality programs at the Y, and expect to pay fees out of a sense of personal responsibility. In time of need, YMCA financial assistance continues this responsibility in a partnership of assistance.
Each participant will pay a part of the fees, based upon a sliding scale and the specific needs of the individual or family. This financial assistance scholarship is a temporary agreement extending assistance in a time of need. As the need decreases, it is expected that your share of payment will increase accordingly. Assistance will usually be granted for a specific time period. If assistance is still required after this period of time, another request form will need to be completed.
