Financial Assistance


Through the generosity of many individuals, Y staff, Y board members, businesses, United Way, and the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation donating to our Annual Support Campaign, the YMCA is able to offer financial assistance for memberships and programs.

If you are interested in receiving financial assistance for membership or programs, please fill out the APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP AND PROGRAMMING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE and return to the Superior YMCA front desk. This is the first step in the financial assistance program. If you are interested look at the 2022 Federal Poverty Guidlines and estimate what level of financial assistance you may qualify for.

To qualify, please provide the following document(s) for every adult in the household upon first visit:

If from 1040 is not available provide all three of the following documents:

  • One month of Paychecks or Pay stubs
  • W-2
  • Social Security Benefit Statement

If you are unable to provide any of the above, please provide a written statement explaining your situation and any income you may be earning. 

If approved, you will receive an approval letter via email or mail from the YMCA in approximately 2 business days. Financial assistance memberships and programs are valid for 12 months. The month prior to your expiration date for membership, you will receive a renewal notice in the mail. You may reapply using the same process prior to your expiration date.


Any questions about the financial assistance program for membership or programs please call the Y at 715-392-5611.
