Membership For All - YMCA Financial Assistance

Everyone is welcome at the Y. We provide membership and program services to everyone desiring to participate regardless of race, religion, gender, marital status, national origin, disability or income. The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh provides financial assistance for children, teens, adults and families who cannot afford the full cost of a Y membership.

We use a sliding fee scale based on total household income, which requires supporting documentation to verify. Recipients are expected to be responsible for a percentage of the membership cost. Qualification for YMCA financial assistance for membership is reviewed every year.

If you need financial assistance, please bring proof of income to your local branch.
