Helping Neighbors in Need

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. Each year, we provide over $200,000 in financial assistance locally, thanks to generous support from our members and donors to the Strong Communities fundraising campaign, grants, and special events.

To apply for an Open Doors Scholarship, pick up an application at the Membership Desk or download a copy here. After completing the applcation, return it to the Membership Desk for review. All applications are confidential and supporting documentation is shredded after review. Please give our staff a week to review your application and contact you with your sponsorship amount. 

Open Doors Scholarships are available for membership, afterschool, summer camp, and programs within the YMCA. Scholarships are made possible due to the generous donations to the Annual Strong Communities Campaign and corporate/foundation grants. Consider making a donation today to help a neighbor in need.
