Financial Scholarships

The mission of the Lancaster Family YMCA is to provide programs and services that enhance the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of the community. The Y believes that everyone should have access to these programs and services regardless of their ability to pay for them.

Through the Lancaster Family YMCA Financial Scholarship Program, families and individuals who want to participate in Y membership and Y programs, but can’t afford to pay the full fee, can receive financial assistance to help offset the cost.

YMCA Financial Scholarships are available to help pay for Y memberships and programs such as summer camps, preschool, after-school childcare, swimming lessons, youth sports and wellness programs. Anyone with an annual household income of $50,000 or less is eligible to apply for a Y Financial Scholarship towards Y membership or programs.

Financial Scholarship Applications are available at our Welcome Desks or by downloading the following files.
