The Anaheim Family YMCA is committed to making its programs available to everyone. We offer Financial Assistance to reduce program fees to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.


  • Applicants who reside in the YMCA service area will be given priority.
  • Assistance may be awarded based on financial need. All individual fees are kept confidential, as they are specific to individual and family circumstances.
  • Completed application with proof of income attached.
  • Household must fall on or below the “Family Size and Income Level Scale”, a standard HUD guideline.
  • Eligibility for assistance will be reviewed annually or as deemed necessary.
  • Applicants have 3 business days from registration date to turn in accompanying documentation.


  • Once ALL documentation and completed online registration have been received, there is up to a 3-week processing period.
  • Applications will NOT be processed without proof of income. Do not submit originals as they will not be returned.
  • Applications will be reviewed on a first come, first served basis.
  • The remainder of qualified applicants will be placed on a Financial Assistance waiting list.
  • Applicants must apply for each specific program. (ex: If applying for financial assistance for camp, swim and basketball, three different applications will be filled out- one per program)
  • The applicant is to notify the YMCA if income status changes.
  • After a thorough review of the application and supporting documents, the YMCA will grant financial assistance to the extent that funds are available. The YMCA reserves the right to refuse assistance to any applicant.
