Financial Assistance

Our commitment to our community is that no person will be turned away due to inability to pay.

The YMCA of Greenville & Hunt County can make this extraordinary commitment because we have lots of dedicated volunteer fundraisers and generous donors who ensure that any person who wants to pursue a healthy lifestyle can access the programs and services we provide. In fact, in 2010 we gave out thousands of dollars in direct financial assistance to ensure that Y programs and memberships were accessible for everyone.

Our 2010 Strong Kids Campaign raised more than $24,000. This member-to-member fundraising effort provides financial assistance for youth from low-income families to participate in Y value-based programs such as summer camp, youth sports and swimming lessons. This campaign also funds youth and family memberships, and after-school care.

Who is eligible for YMCA financial assistance?

Anyone may apply for financial assistance. Approval of the application is made on an individual basis. The YMCA uses a slidingfee scale based on total household income and number of dependents. The scale assists the staff of each branch in determining the amount of scholarship awarded and its applicable time frame.

Need Assistance?

We have many financial assistance plans for all income levels. Please stop by our Member Service Desk to find out how the Y can help you and your family today.
