The YMCA is committed to serving the entire community. Through our financial assistance program, qualified individuals and families are granted financial assistance to enable participation and membership. To apply for financial assistance:
- Download our Financial Assistance Form or pick one up at your local Y
- Return the application to your Y with proof of income (tax return/1040 form, SSI statement, Food Stamp documentation, Child Support documentation, etc.)
- All assistance is granted for 12 months, at which time recipients are welcome to reapply with updated proof of income
Financial Assistance is made possible by donations from our members and community partners. To help make a membership possible for someone right here in our Knoxville community, please consider a gift to our Annual Campaign.
