Financial Assisitance


Financial Assistance

The Y is a cause for strengthening community. That's why we're here working with you every day, making sure that you, your family and community have the resources and support your need to learn, grow and thrive. Financial assistance is offered to individuals and families who may not otherwise be able to afford a Y experience.

The YMCA does not turn anyone away due to the inability to pay. Financial aid is available for membership and programs to those who qualify. Applications are available at the Front Desk or may be downloaded

Fitness Reimbursement

Effective January 2017, 
There have been some changes in the way the reimbursement program is managed and you will be required to take action by January 31 to avoid interruption to your reimbursement. Please click on this link for information and directions to continue receiving your reimbursement payments. The changes will give you the consumer the ability to monitor and manage your account by viewing your total visits, when your reimbursement is due, allowing you to make changes to your information as well as other added member benefits.


Please click here for information and directions on how to enroll in the program.

YMCA members enrolled in ELIGIBLE insurance plans with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota and/or North Dakota, Health Partners, Medica, Preferred One, or Healthways can receive a reimbursement by working out a set number of days each month. That's more money in your pocket for staying healthy!

Call the 1-800 number on the back of your insurance card to see if your plan qualifies.
