Financial Assistance

Thanks to funds from the United Way and our Annual Y Partners Campaign, the Oahe Family YMCA provides financial assistance for children, teens, adults and families who cannot afford the full cost of a Y membership or YMCA programs.

We use a sliding fee scale based on total household income and the number of household members. We require supporting documentation to verify household size and income, and we consider special circumstances when providing assistance.

Recipients are expected to be responsible for a percentage of the membership cost and/or the program fees. Qualification for YMCA financial assistance for membership is reviewed every year.
