Apply For An Open Doors Scholarship

In an effort to create a Y for ALL, the Findlay YMCA provides scholarship assistance for membership through our Open Doors program. Generous contributions made to our Annual Campaign from community members and local businesses give us the opportunity to provide financial assistance to those in need. Through membership, Open Doors recipients have access to free and reduced fee programming and childcare.

Applicants who are applying for help with childcare fees MUST show that they have first submitted an application to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services before submitting an application to the YMCA. To properly administer these funds the Findlay YMCA requires all participants to fill out the application completely and provide all necessary documentation requested. All information is confidential.

A new application and updated information will be required annually.

The OPEN DOORS program is funded by your support of the Findlay YMCA Annual Campaign.

To apply, download the Open Doors Application below or pick up an application at one of our locations.
