Financial Assistance

Access to enriching programs and meaningful connections has the power to elevate quality of life.

That’s why the Y is committed to removing financial barriers.

Thanks to the generous donors to our Annual Giving Campaign, qualified applicants are approved for YMCA of Austin scholarships based on a sliding fee scale designed to fit each applicant’s unique financial circumstance.

Apply for financial assistance online or in-person. Here’s how:

  • Stop by any of our 8 area locations, and our Welcome Center team can verify your income. Bring your most recent 1040 tax form to get started with the membership that’s right for you.
  • Join online now
    • Choose your income bracket, and your dues will be adjusted according to our sliding scale rates. (Be sure to indicate the type of membership you want, including the number of adults.)
    • Then, submit your 1040 tax form using the secure tool below, or bring it to your nearest YMCA location within 30 days of joining.
