Financial Assistance

It is the policy of the Hamilton Area YMCA to provide services for any person who desires to participate and understands the benefits of the YMCA, regardless of their ability to pay standard membership or program fees. Those not able to pay the full fee may be awarded partial assistance based on demonstrated need. Assistance is granted on the basis of financial need, when funds are available. Household income guidelines are used as initial eligibility criteria. The YMCA believes a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed if the financial assistance recipient contributes to the cost of their YMCA involvement; therefore, applicants may be asked to pay a portion of the membership or program fees.

YMCA A.W.A.Y. and NJ Reciprocity

YMCA A.W.A.Y.

A.W.A.Y means “Always Welcome at YMCAs.” Our members are part of a nationwide association of people helping to build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities. The A.W.A.Y. program provides access to participating YMCAs in the United States when you travel away from home on business or vacation. A YMCA’s participation in this program is voluntary.  Some restrictions apply.

Because each local YMCA sets its own policies, each participating YMCA in the A.W.A.Y. program has its own local restrictions. If you are planning to be out of town and would like to visit another YMCA, please call that YMCA for its visitor policies before you go. To find information on any YMCA in the United States, go to www.ymca.net and conduct a “Find Your YMCA” search.  YMCAs participating in the A.W.A.Y. program are noted.

NJ Reciprocity

The state of NJ has a reciprocal membership agreement which allows you to visit participating YMCAs in NJ at no cost following their policies. You must use your Home YMCA (the YMCA you are paying dues to) the most. Please call the YMCA you are planning to visit in advance to find out their specific policies and types of facilities available to you.
