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, Sporting Clay Tournament, and by generous commitments to our Endowment Funds.


To request financial assistance:

  • If you are interested in obtaining financial assistance for membership, complete the online financial aid application.
  • If you are interested in obtaining financial assistance for child care, you must first apply for a child care scholarship through MSDE. For more information, please contact Child Care Central at 1-866-243-8796. Families who do not qualify for the CCS scholarship may apply for YMCA financial aid, but please note that a CCS denial letter must accompany the YMCA application. You can pick up a printed Financial Aid Form 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.
