Financial Assistance

Y membership or program scholarship is not a handout, but a helping hand. The YMCA of Waycross is here for people of all walks of life – when things are OK and when there are problems. In time of need, our Y wants to ensure that all of our life-strengthening programs are affordable and accessible for you and your family.

Each participant will pay a part of the fees, based upon a sliding scale and the specific needs of the individual or family. This financial assistance scholarship is a temporary agreement extending assistance in a time of need. Assistance will usually be granted for a specific time period. If assistance is still required after this period of time, another request form will need to be completed.

Financial assistance is available for all YMCA programs and membership. The applicant must decide on the type of scholarship most needed at the time of application. Financial need must be demonstrated by providing financial documents which will be kept strictly confidential. A list of required documents is provided on the application. Apply as early as possible for program scholarships as funding may be limited to first-come, first-served in some instances.
