We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward. That's why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors by providing opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of stronger communities.


The YMCA of Douglas County makes every effort to ensure that no person, especially youth, will be denied access to programs and membership because of financial hardship. Help is based on demonstrated need and the YMCA's ability to fund. The Y’s Financial Assistance Program is supported by contributions to our annual People Helping People Campaign.


Thanks to the generosity of donors, we are able to award need-based financial assistance to those who qualify. Aid amounts are based on a sliding scale that takes into account total gross household income and the number of people in the home, as well as each individual's situation. This assistance can reduce the cost of membership up to 50%. Please note if you qualify for Atrio, UHA or other insurance payment services, all other payment services must be exhausted prior to qualifying for Financial Assistance.

You may fill out the application below and email it to or bring it into the YMCA. We are unable to fully process the application without copies of your income mentioned on the form. Please make sure your email is clearly written and that your cell phone is up to date and your voicemail is set up or not full. Applications may take up to a week to process. You may call back to see if you have been approved.
