Financial Assistance

The essence of the Y

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Everyone is welcome

The YMCA welcomes all who wish to participate and believes that no one should be denied access to the Y based on their ability to pay. Through our Community Support Campaign, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region provides assistance to youth, adults and families based on individual needs and circumstances.

Committed to our community

Determining assistance amounts is handled by YMCA Family Centers in a fair and consistent manner. Every Y member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive assistance. YMCA members can feel confident knowing that they are part of an organization that cares greatly for the well-being of all people, and is committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Please Note

Financial Assistance reduces fees; it does not eliminate them.
The YMCA requests that individuals and families reapply.
If you do not reapply at the time requested, your membership will revert to full pay.
Please contact your Y Family Center if you have any questions.

For Those Who Need It Most

The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region is committed to strengthening community through membership and programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Thanks to many generous donors who support the Y's Annual Campaign, this commitment is brought to life in the form of financial assistance for people who need it most. At the Y, a family in need is able to gain peace of mind knowing that their child is safe under our care, teens have opportunities to interact with and receive support from caring mentors and individuals, and people from all walks of life can be healthy.

If you are unable to pay the full cost of Y membership or programs, you may apply for partial assistance based on your financial situation.
