Financial Assistance

The Mankato Family YMCA strives to make membership available to everyone. With support from the Greater Mankato United Way and funds raised through our annual Strong Community Campaign, individuals and families are provided assistance when they cannot afford the full rate. We use a sliding fee scale based on total household income and the number of household members. We require supporting documentation to verify household size and income, and we consider special circumstances when providing assistance. Recipients are expected to be responsible for a percentage of the membership cost. Qualification for YMCA financial assistance for membership is reviewed every year. *Note: Financial Assistance memberships do not receive renewal notices.

How do I apply?

Membership Bank & Credit/Debit Card Drafts: We would hate to see you go, however if you choose to cancel your membership you must notify the YMCA in writing  by the 25th of the month prior to next membership draft.  Memberships are continuous until written request is given for termination. It is your responsibility to cancel your membership if you decide to discontinue use of the YMCA facility.

Payroll Deductions/Annual Memberships: We would hate to see you go, however if you choose to cancel your membership, you must provide the YMCA with a 30 day written notice. Memberships are continuous until written request is given for termination. It is your responsibility to cancel your membership if you decide to discontinue use of the YMCA facility.

Please note; re-starting a lapsed membership of 30 days or more may require a joining fee. Cancellation forms are available online and at the YMCA front desk. Cancellation inquiries should be emailed to Please fill out our cancellation form here.


Membership refunds are only permitted when there are extenuating circumstances that limited you from notifying the YMCA of your cancellation. These would need to be accompanied by proper documentation (i.e. doctor’s note). If you were incorrectly charged due to the YMCA’s failure to cancel or put the membership on hold, a full refund will be given as long as the refund is accompanied by proper documentation (i.e. hold form, cancel form, email, etc). Under these circumstances, the YMCA will not refund more than six months of membership at any given time. In the case that you receive a scholarship through our Financial Assistance program and you have been alerted that your rate will be expiring and have failed to provide renewal documentation, no refund will be given.
