“The Y’s scholarship program helps out people like us in rare financial situations. I never thought I would have to go to the food shelf or ask for scholarships.” – Betsy, mom to Kenzie



Your gift to the Y Partners Scholarship Fund gives your neighbors access and opportunity. Y Partners are individuals and organizations who help fund and support scholarships for our programs and services including need-based memberships. Families enjoy a nurturing environment to reconnect, and individuals of all fitness levels and physical abilities can grow stronger in spirit, mind and body.
