Opening Doors Scholarship Program

The Old Town-Orono YMCA is a non-profit membership organization committed to building strong communities, families, and individuals through programs that promote a healthy spirit, mind, and body for everyone.That is why we offer our Open Doors Program, review applications on an individual basis and offer discounts on memberships or programs.

The Old Town-Orono YMCA believes that a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed if members have contributed to the cost of their YMCA involvement. Therefore, Open Doors applicants are asked to pay a portion of the membership dues. In order to continue to provide financial assistance to others, your portion of the scholarship may be subject to increase when you reapply.

Members requesting financial assistance must fill out an Open Doors application and provide all the information required. We need to be aware of your expenses so that we can provide financial assistance in a fair and consistent manner.

Open Doors Membership Scholarship (2)

You may only apply for a scholarship for Membership and/or Childcare.

To process your application, all your household income needs to be verified ~ this is a requirement for receiving assistance and incomplete information will delay processing of your application.  Income verification should include income from all members of the household.

All Old Town-Orono YMCA members receive the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they are receiving financial assistance. Members can feel good knowing that they are involved in an organization that cares greatly for the health and wellbeing of people in their community.

Please contact our Membership Office with any comments, questions or concerns. Thank you.
