Financial Assistance

 

The YMCA’s mission is to serve EVERYONE in our community with programs that build a healthy mind, spirit & body. We honor our mission by offering financial assistance to anyone demonstrating need. Thanks to generous donors and grants, financial assistance is available for any YMCA program and/or membership.

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. We consider special circumstances when providing assistance.

WHAT IS FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE? 
The Gallatin Valley YMCA is proud to offer sliding scale rates for any program we provide, including: 
• membership   • summer camps• programs       • child care     • youth sports    family programs and more.

HOW MUCH ASSISTANCE CAN I EXPECT? 
The amount of financial assistance depends on household income, number of people in household and monthly expenses. Please see required documentation that must be provided detailing income, expenses and extenuating circumstances. Recipients are expected to be responsible for a percentage of the cost of membership, camps or programs. Qualification for YMCA financial assistance is reviewed each year. 

HOW LONG  WILL IT TAKE TO PROCESS MY APPLICATION?
We ask that financial assistance requests be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the program or camp start date. Processing financial assistance requires at least 5 working days.

HOW DO I APPLY?
For financial assistance requests, please complete our financial aid form with all documentation and return to the front desk. Please note: A $10 non-refundable deposit will be required with all financial assistance applications. This will be applied towards the cost of the program.
