Membership For All:  Financial Assistance

Everyone belongs at the YMCA, regardless of income level.

The heart of the YMCA's mission is to serve all people in our community. That's why we offer income-based membership, which is funded by donations from local families and organizations to the Y's Annual Campaign. Income-based membership gives kids, families, and adults the opportunity to pay the monthly membership fee that best aligns to their household income. No one fee fits every individual's situation.

  • Who is eligible? Any individual or family who has a permanent address in our service area and is having financial difficulty.
  • What is Membership For All? The Manitowoc-Two Rivers Y programs and services are available to everyone regardless of ability to pay. Membership For All financial assistance is a sliding fee scale program that is designed to meet each individual's financial needs.
  • How will the financial assistance amount be determined? Financial assistance will be determined by the number of individuals residing in the household, the combined gross income of individuals living in the household, the Y sliding fee scale and the availability of Y funds.
  • How long will my financial assistance continue? Membership financial assistance is typically awarded for six or twelve months. Memberships can be renewed by completing the application and providing updated financial documentation.
