A Y for All Community Members
The YMCA of Southwest Michigan is available for the benefit and enjoyment of all who live and work in our community. For over 70 years, people have trusted the YMCA to provide quality programs and activities in the community we live in.
The Financial Assistance Program provides families and individuals in need of financial support to participate in membership and select programs. The YMCA knows the people prefer to accept responsibility and pay full registration fees when they are able to afford them. But when financial difficulties stretch individual and family budgets too thin, the need for YMCA programs remain, and in some instances, are even more crucial.
As a non-profit organization, YMCA memberships are subsidized by contributions given by individuals, companies, foundations, and the Annual Campaign. These generous contributions make the Financial Assistance program possible. Upon approval, those unable to afford the full membership fee may be awarded a scholarship.
