THE ESSENCE OF THE Y
Welcome to the Downtown Oakland YMCA. The Y is committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow, and
thrive. To help, the Downtown Oakland YMCA provides financial assistance for those who may not be able to afford the full cost of
programs and services. By offering a financial assistance program, Y programs can be accessible to individuals and families at all
income levels without maintaining a fee structure that is artificially low or that compromises program quality.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME
The Downtown Oakland YMCA welcomes all who wish to participate. Through our Financial Assistance Program, we provide
assistance to youth, adults and families based on individual needs and circumstances. All this is made possible through the hard
work and generosity of our volunteer fundraisers and donors.
COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY

Oakland YMCA through an application process. Every Y member
