YMCA Financial Assistance

The Y is a 501(c)3 non-profit and is one of the largest philanthropic organizations in the world. Every day, the Stephens Family YMCA offers quality, affordable programs and services designed to benefit people of all incomes and backgrounds. The Y is an essential part of our community and it belongs to everyone regardless of income, which is why we offer financial assistance to qualifying individuals and families who cannot afford membership. 

Each year the Stephens Family YMCA provides more than $250,000 in scholarships locally. These funds are raised through donations made to our Annual Campaign and through special events and grants.
