We recognize that for our community to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy and confident. That’s why we are committed to providing financial assistance to families in need.

Financial Assistance for a Membership

The YMCA welcomes all who wish to participate and believes that no one should be denied access to the Y based on their ability to pay. Through our Annual Campaign, the Countryside YMCA provides assistance to youth, adults and families based on individual needs and circumstances.

If your annual income is under $72,620 we offer rate adjustments to make the Y affordable for all.  Every YMCA member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive financial assistance. If you are eligible, a portion of your membership fees will be covered by funds from our Annual Campaign. If you receive membership financial assistance, your membership will be activated as soon as you make your first month’s payment.

Any financial assistance provided will last for one year. If you continue to need financial assistance after that time, you will need to reapply yearly.

Financial Assistance for Programs

Anyone who is a member of the Y, but is struggling financially to pay for additional classes, can apply annually for program financial assistance. Recipients receive  up to $300 annually to take classes (excluding certain specialty classes, specialty camps, or private lessons.) You pay for 50% of the course fee, and funds from our Annual Campaign will cover the other 50% until the total has been spent. If you receive program assistance, it will be activated as soon as you register in person for classes.

Any financial assistance provided will last for one year. If you continue to need financial assistance after that time, you will need to reapply yearly.
For more information contact Denise Evans at 513 932 1424 ext. 170.

Financial Aid for Childcare

Childcare financial assistance is available to families that meet the income eligibility guidelines. Once approved, the recipient will be responsible for 50-90% of the tuition weekly and YMCA financial aid will fund the remaining 10-50%. This program is also available to families currently enrolled who experience a job loss or other financial hardship. If you receive childcare financial assistance, it will be activated at the time of enrollment.

Eligibility will be reviewed every three to six months.
