Man and woman stretchingBecause of our nonprofit mission, at the Y, no one is turned away for their inability to pay.

At the Piedmont Family YMCA, our policy is to provide services for any person who desires to participate. This policy is designed to ensure that all YMCA programs are accessible to all members of the community and that no one is excluded because of inability to pay.

While participants are expected to pay their fair share of operating costs, those not able to pay the full tuition may be awarded assistance based on their demonstrated need, the YMCA's ability to fund the subsidy, and space available.

YMCA Scholarships

In addition to sliding scale pricing and member discounts for some programs, the Y provides scholarships to ensure that nobody is turned away from the Y for inability to pay. To apply for a YMCA scholarship for membership or programs:

  • Download & fill out the YMCA Financial Aid form [PDF]

Virginia DSS Child Care Assistance

We hope to see you soon at the Y!
