Fond du Lac Family YMCA financial assistance application process now available online

The Fond du Lac Family YMCA announces a new online application process for their financial assistance program, Membership for All.

The Y opens their doors to everyone in the community and believes that no one should be denied access based on their ability to pay. Through the Membership for All program, the Fond du Lac Family YMCA provides assistance to youth, adults and families based on individual needs and circumstances. Any individual or family whose total combined gross household income is less than $80,000 per year is encouraged to apply.  Monthly membership rates are based on total household income.

How to Apply Online

To apply online, complete the online Membership for All application found at and upload all income verification documents, as applicable. After your application is reviewed you will receive an email within 1-3 business days, indicating whether your application was approved or denied.  Membership for All approvals require membership enrollment within 30 days of approval, or re-application is required.

Submit these required documents with application:

  • Most recent federal income tax return (1040 or equivalent, not W-2 forms) is required for all adults (not including dependents) in the household.
  • Last two pay stubs for all adults (not including dependents) in the household.
