Everyone is Welcome
The Y welcomes all who wish to participate and believes that no one should be denied membership based on their ability to pay. Through Financial Assistance Program, the Marion Family YMCA provides membership assistance to youth, adults and families based on individual needs and circumstances.
Committed To Our Community
Determining scholarship amounts is awarded on a sliding fee scale based on household size and income. We also take into consideration other factors such as large medical bills, recent job lay-offs, etc.. Every Y member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether they are receiving a scholarship. Y members can feel confident knowing that they are a part of an organization that cares greatly for the well-being of all people, and is committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
