Financial Assistance Hero

Ensuring access for all


Our goal is to make the Y accessible to everyone.

Our focus is to meet the needs of the underserved & financially challenged populations of Whatcom County.

Financial Assistance is made possible by our Annual Community Support Campaign. Financial Assistance is provided to individuals, children and families on a need basis and allows access to programs, activities and facilities at our Y. Anyone is eligible to apply for Financial Assistance.

It is our privilege to offer Financial Assistance through our Open Doors Scholarship Program. The Y awarded over $313,105.80 in financial assistance to 6,945 individuals and/or families in 2016.
