INCOME-BASED MEMBERSHIP

At the Y, strengthening the foundation of our community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. We provide support for families and promote positive change overall through our Annual Campaign. When you give to the Y, you help more people move forward.

It is our goal that no one be denied YMCA services due to an inability to pay. If the Income-Based Rate is still not affordable for you, please ask us about applying for a Scholarship.

Program and Child Care Assistance

  • A maximum of 40% program and child care assistance is available.
  • Please ask member services staff for more information.
  • If you feel you have a need for more assistance please call the Y for a confidential appointment to discuss further.

Selection Process

Eligibility for financial assistance will be determined by the appropriate staff, based on a thorough review of the application and at times a personal appointment with the applicant. The length of assistance will not exceed twelve months. You will be asked to complete a new IBP form for all renewals. Failure to report any form of income may result in the termination or delay of assistance from the Y. The Two Rivers YMCA reserves the right to refuse assistance to any applicant.
