Financial Assistance

As a mission-driven nonprofit organization, the YMCA of Austin is committed to serving everyone in our community and ensuring they have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive — which is why we provide financial scholarships through our Membership For All program, reducing the cost of memberships, program fees and child care services offered by the Y.

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.

You can apply for financial scholarship online or in-branch:

  • Stop by any of our 8 area locations, and our Welcome Center team can verify your adjusted gross income with your most recent 1040 tax form and sign you up for a membership.
  • Join online now, choose your income bracket, and your dues will be adjusted according to our sliding scale rates. You will need to bring your most recent 1040 tax form to your home branch within 30 days of joining.
  • If you do not file, we will ask you to complete Form 4506-T or schedule an appointment with one of our financial assistance coordinators and provide another form of your household income.
  • Failure to update your income verification information and bring your most recent tax documentation to the branch will result in your membership increasing to the standard Y membership rate.
