Donor Supported Financial Assistance

We are committed to nurturing the potential of all kids, improving health and well-being for all, and giving back. To ensure equitable access for every man, woman, and child, we offer affordable membership and program options through our donor supported financial assistance program.

For some, the Y is a life line. It's where they stay connected to their community, it's where they are able to prevent or treat chronic illness conditions that require physical activity, and for others, the Y is the gateway to improved mental and emotional health, and it's a place where parents can connect with their kids.

We are so much more than a gym - and this program ensures we can keep inspiring and motivating our friends and neighbors to be their very best. 





LiveStrong at the YMCA, a cancer survivorship program, has been successful ensuring our most at risk participants continued to receive support during the COVID-19 pandemic. LiveStrong at the YMCA offers cancer survivors mental, emotional and physical support so that cancer survivors can get back to being their best selves. Continuing to provide the emotional and mental support that our friends experience through this program is vital to their overall wellness and success of their complete recovery. With the magic of modern technology and ingenuity of our program directors and instructors we are happy to announce that LiveStrong at the YMCA was accessible and successful. Soon participants will gather again in person, safely. 

LiveStrong at the YMCA is offered to cancer survivors at no charge, and we are eager to continue offering this to our community. With your help we can continue to do so.
