Financial Assistance for Membership

Here for All

Thanks to the generosity of donors to our Annual Campaign, the YMCA of the Honolulu provides financial assistance for individuals and families who cannot afford the full cost of a Y membership or program. We also offer financial assistance for YMCA Programs.

Financial assistance is determined by a sliding fee scale based on total household income and number of household members and then, the availability of financial assistance funds.

Please use the calculator below to determine the monthly membership rate you would pay based on your selected membership category and the amount of financial assistance  provided by the YMCA pending availability of funds.
