Financial Assistance

Our utmost goal is to make the Y and all we offer accessible and available to the entire metropolitan Washington community! Each year, we raise money among staff, community partners, members and volunteers so that we can provide services to those who could not otherwise afford it.
Our scholarship and subsidy program is needs-based, and no one is ever turned away. From membership to youth sports, summer camp to swim lessons, and so much more, the Y is here to support you in your mental, physical, and spiritual growth. You can rest assured that the Y will guide you in having a healthy and happy life.
