The West Morris Area YMCA is here for all. Financial assistance is available for membership and programs thanks to generous donor support of the Y's Annual Campaign.


Our financial assistance program, supported in part through donations, provides gym membership and lower program fees to those in need within our available resources. Scholarship amounts are granted based on the applicant’s demonstrated need due to household income and/or extenuating circumstances.


To apply for financial assistance, please download an application or stop by the Welcome Center Desk. Submit the completed application to the Welcome Center along with the requested documentation. Applications are reviewed once a month and must be submitted by the 15th of each month to be reviewed that month. 

Financial assistance keeps the Y accessible for children, adults, and families who need us most. We count on the generosity of our members and community to help people of all ages and from all walks of life be more healthy, confident, connected, and secure. When you give to the Y, your gift will have a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood.

The Y is the unparalleled cause for strengthening community because we are the community. We are a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause.

The Y strives to make the Y programs and services more affordable for everyone, so that kids and adults can receive the educational, physical, and social benefits of our programs, while reducing the stress on adults juggling work and household responsibilities with the uncertainties of life. Through our Annual Campaign, qualifying families and individuals can receive a reduced rate on Y programs like summer camp and before/after school care. Even if you don’t think you would qualify for assistance, we encourage you to apply.
