Financial Assistance

The Madison Area YMCA is a 501(c)(3) cause-driven charitable organization dedicated to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. It is inclusive of all people and offers programs and services that develop a healthy mind, body and spirit.

Children, families and adults who reside/work within the Y’s service area can participate in Y membership, programs, child care and school-age programs, regardless of their abilities to pay. The Y makes sure that these services are available to everyone in the community, through the Financial and Member Assistance program.

Funds also help initiate community wellness and health-enhancing programs such as LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, Enhance®Fitness, Community Mental Health Initiative and our Diabetes Prevention Program.


More than $550,000 of financial assistance was awarded in 2019 and more than $375,000 was awarded in 2020, despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
