Everyone is welcome at the YMCA. Walk into our facility, and you will see people of all ages and incomes. If a person or family is unable to pay for membership, scholarships are provided through donations from generous businesses, foundations, and individuals. Over $300,000 in charitable gifts were given to the Valparaiso Family YMCA last year to support membership scholarships and programs that change lives. The demand for scholarships and program sponsors increases every year. Your gifts are needed to keep the YMCA open to all.
