New York City’s YMCA is here for all New Yorkers. Thanks to the generosity of donors, the Y offers scholarships to individuals and families for YMCA gym memberships and programs.


Our financial assistance program, supported in part through donations, provides gym membership and program services to those in need within our available resources. Scholarship amounts are granted based on the applicant’s demonstrated need due to household income and/or extenuating circumstances.


To apply for financial assistance, please download an application or stop by the Member Services Desk at one of our branches. Submit the completed application to the Member Service Desk along with the requested documentation.
