Financial Scholarships help keep the Y within reach of everyone.

The YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne believes that finances should not be a barrier to participating.  Our goal is to put the Y within reach of everyone. Thanks to our many generous donors who support the Y’s Annual Campaign, we are pleased to  offer financial scholarships to offset the price of memberships at all levels.
