Financial Assistance

The YMCA wants to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate in our programs and enjoy the facilities and services


Financial assistance is available for memberships, child care, and summer camp programs for individuals and families with financial need. Funds are made available through the generous contributions of friends to the YMCA’s Annual Campaign; including events like our Fore The Kids Golf Tournament, Clays For Kids Sporting Clay Outing, and by generous commitments to our Endowment Funds.

Financial Assistance Process

There are two ways to request financial assistance:

  1. If you are interested in obtaining financial assistance for membership, simply download the financial aid application and return the completed application to the front desk.
  2. If you are interested in obtaining financial assistance for child care, you must first apply to the Department of Social Services at 301-631-2687 for Purchase of Care (POC). Families who do not qualify for DSS programs may apply for YMCA financial aid, but please note that a DSS denial letter must accompany YMCA application.

Download an application below or pick one up at the Y’s front desk. Please allow 2-4 weeks for processing completed applications. For more details, please call 301-663-5131 x 1287.
