Membership Assistance


The mission of the Itasca County Family YMCA is to strengthen ourselves, families and communities by promoting growth in spirit, mind and body.

We provide financial assistance for children, teens, adults and families who cannot afford the full cost of a Y membership. Assistance is also available for YMCA programs.

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 and/or program cost. Qualification for YMCA financial assistance for membership is reviewed every year.

How do I Apply?

  1. Download and print financial assistance application or pick one up a the membership desk.

  3. Return the application and required documents to your YMCA.
