Financial Assistance Program
The Duneland Family YMCA believes that its programs and services should be available to everyone-regardless of age, background, ability or income. That's why we offer the Financial Assistance Program, a financial assistance program that guarantees no one will be turned away due to inability to pay.
Sharing the financial responsibility will give you peace of mind, as well as a sense of ownership and pride. Those that qualify will be asked to pay only a portion of the established rate. Generious Y members and other donors contribute the remaining amount by giving to the annual Duneland Family YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.
To apply, please come to the Duneland Family YMCA and pick up a Financial Assistance Application or click here to print off a copy. Please allow two to four weeks for your application to be processed. After reviewing your application, a YMCA director will determine financial assistance eligibility. You will be notified by telephone or mail if your application has been approved or if you need to submit additional information. Assistance is awarded on a first come, first served basis and subject to available resources.
Assistance is reviewed for eligibility every 6 months and fees are subject to change. You are required to reapply as requested and keep your application updated. Scholarship requests are departmental. Awards are calculated based on availability. If you do not reapply, fees will increase to 100% of the established rate.
