      Together 20 Referral Program

      The Y is here to help you achieve all your health and wellness goals, and sometimes working out with a friend can motivate you to stay on track. Refer a friend to join the Y, and when they join, you and your friend will both receive 20% OFF the membership dues with our Together 20 Program. After all, the YMCA is more fun (and cheaper!) with your friends.

      How it works
        1. Any member of at least 15 days who pays monthly membership dues through credit card or bank draft can invite friends to join the Y by referring them online (fill out the form below).
        2. When they join, both you and your friend will receive 20% off regular monthly membership dues, as long as you remain members. Offer can’t be combined with other discounts.
        3. You and your friend will keep the monthly discount as long as you both are members. Should one of you leave the Y, the other will have 30 days to find a new referral and continue to receive the discount.

      Financial Assistance

      It is the philosophy of the YMCA to provide services for any person who desires to participate and understands the benefits of the YMCA, regardless of ability to pay the standard membership or program fee. Those not able to pay the fee may be awarded financial assistance based on the individual need and the ability of the YMCA to fund the subsidy.

      Scholarships will be provided to individuals/families based on need and based on the amount of subsidy dollars available. The Fort Worth YMCA obtains funding for scholarships from four primary sources:  our Annual Campaign, United Way of Tarrant County, government grants and the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth Endowment, Inc.

      For more information about Financial Assistance or to receive an application for yourself or someone you know, please call or visit the Member Service desk at any of our locations.
