‘Open Doors’ Financial Assistance

Each year, we financially assist over 300 youth and 150 adults for membership and programs here at the Waynesboro Area YMCA. It is our belief that no one should be left out because of a lack of funds. These financial assistance scholarships can be awarded for general membership, adult or youth programs, child care and summer day camps.

We are able to provide more than $90,000 in scholarships annually. The funds available for OPEN DOORS are made possible through the generosity of donors to our Partners With Youth annual support campaign and the United Way of Franklin County.

Application Process: Allow a minimum of 14  business days for application to be processed. Applications can only be processed after all the proper paperwork has been submitted. If you receive any form of government assistance, you should provide official documentation of the amount that is regularly received. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT ORIGINAL DOCUMENTATION- the Y is not responsible for returning this information to you and cannot guarantee these documents will be kept on file.

If you have questions about how to apply or would like more information about your current scholarship, please contact Kathy Bostic, Outreach and Development Director.
