Child Care Scholarships

ChildcareAll are welcome at the YMCA - no one is turned away due to inability to pay.

We think everybody should have the opportunity to participate in YMCA programs. Our sliding fee scale makes it easier for both individuals and families to take that opportunity.

With our sliding fee scale, our level of assistance is based on the annual income and size of your household. We also consider special circumstances, such as medical expenses or recent loss of employment.

The sliding fee scale is available for viewing at your branch, and the process to apply for a scholarship is discreet, confidential and easy.

How can we do this? Funds for our scholarship program are raised by community volunteers during our Annual Campaign. Many of our YMCA members and program participants receive a scholarship, made possible through the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations who have contributed to the YMCA of Greater Cleveland's Annual Campaign.

Scholarship applications are available at any YMCA branch or (click here) for a copy.  For more information, contact our childcare staff or call or visit your local branch.
