FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE GUIDE
At the YMCA we want to make sure that all children and youth have an opportunity to benefit from The First Tee experience. The YMCA offers subsidies and extended payment plans to assist you if your financial circumstances would otherwise prevent you from affording The First Tee program.
Families whose financial circumstances make them unable to pay the full fee for their children’s participation in The First Tee program.
Each family needs to contribute as much as they can afford and families are welcome to make monthly payments to help manage the cost. The amount of assistance will vary depending on income and cannot be determined without going through the application process.
If you are currently receiving subsidy from another division of the YMCA, such as a membership centre, you can still apply to The First Tee of Greater Vancouver YMCA for financial assistance. As long as the account you currently have is in good standing you will automatically be eligible to receive the same level of assistance (i.e. if you receive a 30% subsidy for membership we will give you a 30% subsidy for The First Tee).
Our subsidy program is supported by individuals, service groups and business that donate to The First Tee of Greater Vancouver YMCA.
Applying for subsidy requires a commitment of completing your payments as determined during the application process. We must receive your fully completed application in order to process it.
