Financial Assistance


Made possible by the YMCA's Annual Campaign

We, at the YMCA of Metropolitan Lansing, 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, financial assistance exists to offer financial support to anyone in our community whose income doesn’t allow for 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 an individual basis.

Your local YMCA will review your financial application, and all of the financial documentation you can provide; please see the top of 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 situation, because we realize that financials don’t always paint the whole picture.

If you’re ready to apply for financial support, please print and complete the application at the bottom and bring it in to your local YMCA branch. Within two weeks of receiving your completed application and the required supporting documentation, we will contact you to let you know the outcome of your application. Financial support  is valid for a maximum of six months, but can be renewed with updated financial documentation.

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