ASSISTED MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM
At YMCA North Bay, we offer opportunities to all individuals regardless of age, race, sex, ability, creed or
economic circumstances. Men, women, and children come to the Y to grow and develop into happier, more
productive people. The YMCA is community based and believes that its programs and services should be
available to everyone. That’s why the YMCA offers an Assisted Membership Program. Our Assisted
Membership Program is a sliding fee scale that is designed to fit each individual’s financial situation. The
North Bay YMCA believes a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed if the recipient has
contributed to the cost of their YMCA involvement; therefore, you will be asked to pay some portion of the
Funds available for Assisted Membership are made possible through the generosity
of our members and donors.
The North Bay YMCA requires that individuals provide the requested information on the attached form
regarding income and family size so that financial assistance can be provided in a fair and consistent
manner. Of course, all information will be kept confidential. The YMCA also requires that you reapply
when requested to keep information on your application updated. Assistance will be reviewed for
eligibility based on financial circumstances.
Your fees are subject to an increase when you reapply. If you do not reapply when requested, your
enrollment may be terminated.
To process your application, we need the following information:
o Photocopy of all income sources for the last two months
o Photocopy of rent / mortgage receipt
A YMCA staff member, based on a thorough review of the application will determine financial assistance
eligibility. Please allow 1 week to process your application. You will be notified by mail and/or email
within two weeks if your application has been approved or if you need to submit additional information.
Sponsorship will be awarded on a first come, first served basis, subject to available resources.
All YMCA members receive the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they are receiving
assistance. YMCA members can feel great knowing that they are involved in an organization that cares
greatly for the health and well‐being of people and is committed to building strong kids, strong families
and strong communities.
