As a private, charitable, non-profit organization, Meeting Waters YMCA depends on a variety of funding sources, including donations of services and money. With our focus on school-age child care, a significant portion of our budget comes from Vermont?s Child Care Subsidy Program. Through this support system, lower and lower-middle class working parents and those in job training programs qualify for financial assistance for their child(ren) to attend our state-licensed ASPIRE, Snow Day and camp programs.
Our Board of Directors conducts two financial development campaigns each year--our Reach Out to Youth Campaign in the spring and our Annual Support Campaign each fall.
The remainder of our funding comes from a combination of donations of services, grants, and fees-for-services.
As at all YMCAs, no one is ever denied access to a Meeting Waters YMCA program for lack of ability to pay the program fees. In fact, in fiscal year 2012, 49% of our program participants and their families received a total of more than $250,000 in financial assistance and subsidized services!
