Regardless of financial circumstances

At the YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas, we feel strongly that income should not be a barrier to becoming a member of the Y or participating in any of our programs.

Therefore, thanks in large part to our Annual Campaign, we offer financial support to anyone in our community whose income doesn’t allow for gym membership, swim lessons, youth sports, camp, after school care, and so much more that the YMCA offers.

Anyone can apply to receive financial support. Eligibility for financial support and the amount of financial support that can be given is determined on a case-by-case basis.  

Your local YMCA will review your application, and any and all financial documentation you can provide; please see the the application for a list of pertinent documents. You are also invited to include, with your application, a written and signed letter explaining any special circumstances that are impacting your financial well-being, because we realize that financials don’t always paint the whole picture.

If you’re ready to apply for financial support, please bring this application to your local YMCA branch. Applications will be processed, and any qualified awards will be given, at the time of application. Financial support can be renewed annually with updated financial documentation. 

Thank you for considering being a part of the Y family.  Your membership and participation are important to us!

TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT, please return this completed application to the front desk of your local YMCA, with the proper documentation. Decisions regarding support will be made at the time of application.

One of the following will be required for minimum support of 20%*:

  • Two pay stubs
  • Proof of public assistance
  • Letter from employer
  • Personal letter

Bring all of the following to be considered for greater support, up to 50%*:

  • IRS Form1040 
  • Two pay stubs or letter from the employer
  • Proof of public assistance
  • Proof of Social Security or Disability assistance

All supporting documents will be viewed for income verification and returned. The Y will not retain any sensitive documentation.
