The YMCA of Central Texas is a nonprofit, health, and human services organization committed to helping people reach their full potential in spirit, mind, and body. The Y recognizes that many of the children and families throughout our community would benefit from Y programs and services but cannot afford to participate. The Y’s commitment to our community assures that financial assistance is available to those who qualify. Our financial assistance is based on a sliding fee scale that is designed to fit each family’s financial situation. Thanks to the generous donors of our Annual Campaign, we are able to make the Y accessible through our Financial Assistance Program. The YMCA of Central Texas is exempt from Federal Income Tax under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to the YMCA of Central Texas are deductible in the manner and to the extent of the law.

The YMCA of Central Texas requires that individuals provide all the requested information on the application (which can be downloaded here) regarding income, family size, and necessary expenses so that we can provide assistance in a fair and consistent manner. The scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to available funds. The Y also requires that individuals renew their applications annually, or when requested, to keep information on their applications updated.


All applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be a Full-Time Employee and/or a Full-Time Student
  • Household Income may not exceed $32,000 per year

Assistance will be granted on the basis of financial need. All fees are to be kept confidential, as they are specific to the individual and family circumstances. The Y believes that a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed if the financial assistance recipient contributes to the cost of their Y involvement. Therefore, all applicants will be required to pay a portion of the program fees.


The Financial Assistance Application is available for download here and also at each YMCA of Central Texas location. To submit your application:

  1. Complete the application thoroughly and accurately
  2. Attach the following required documents
    • Last 2 Current Paycheck Stubs
    • Copy of Latest Income Tax Return
    • Copy of Class Schedule if a Full-Time Student
    • Documentation of Social Security or Disability
    • Copy of Child Support/Alimony or Proof of a Pending Case with the Attorney General’s Office or Documentation that you DO NOT receive Child Support.
    • Copy of any Federal Assistance, including Food Stamps (TANIF), Rent Subsidy, etc.
  3. Return your fully-completed application to your local YMCA of Central Texas Health & Wellness Center location.


If you feel there are special circumstances that may be a factor in this decision, please provide in writing your explanation along with the supporting documentation listed above.


Our staff, based on a thorough review of this application, will then determine financial assistance eligibility. You will be notified by phone, mail, and/or e-mail if your application has been approved or if you need to submit additional information. After your application is approved, you will be asked to attend a meeting where you will sign a payment agreement as well as pay the necessary adjusted program registration fees. The YMCA of Central Texas will provide services for anyone who desires to participate within the available resources of the association. Those not able to pay the full fee may be awarded partial financial assistance based on their demonstrated ability to pay and the Y’s ability to fund the subsidy.
