Statement Of Need
(In the space below, please describe the reason and need for financial assistance.) I am willing to share my YMCA Cares experience to help educate the community on the financial assistance program and how it has benefited me and/or my family. I understand that this is voluntary and my name as well as the names used in this statement will be changed and kept confidential. I am aware that the purpose of this statement is to assist the Y in their educational fundraising efforts.
To the best of my knowledge, all the information in this application is true and complete. I realize the Y’s financial resources are limited and therefore, I may be asked to seek additional funding from other sources. I will immediately notify the Y of any changes that might affect my financial status. I accept the responsibility to make scheduled payments on or before the due dates. I will contact the Y if I cannot make a payment on time. I realize that failure to make payments on time and/or to contact the Y regarding payments due, will result in the loss of any assistance granted. I also recognize that as a result of financial contributions made to the Y, my participation has been made possible. I agree to support the Y’s policies, program and staff.
