Stronger Together

The YMCA is dedicated to the health of our community and we want to help your company offer a great benefit to employees... YMCA membership!

They can reduce healthcare costs, while helping employees live longer, healthier, more productive lives.

Getting Started - How the Partnership Works

  • The Company designates a representative to act as a communication liaison and assist in promotion and recruitment.
  • A minimum of eight active employee memberships are required.
  • The Y can provide usage reports to partner companies if desired.
  • One FREE “Try the Y Week” for all Company employees can be scheduled each year.
  • Health fair participation and discounts on additional corporate services can be negotiated.
  • Onsite enrollment at the company can be scheduled.
  • Billing, employment verification, and processing is easy!

* Sample plans only.
Partnership plan would be applied to the individual employees appropriate membership category. YMCA will also waive the $25 joiner fee. If the corporate partnership program does not fit an employee's financial needs, financial assistance is available and awarded based on the applicant’s demonstrated ability to pay and the YMCA’s ability to fund the amount requested. A member can choose either the corporate partnership rate or a financial assistance rate. A company contribution of at least $100/year is required. Companies may contribute any amount above that minimum up to 100% of the total cost.


Try the Y Week

If a full corporate partnership is not within your reach, we invite your employees to "Try the Y!" Simply contact us and we'll set up a week where your employees can visit any Lincoln YMCA facility for FREE. They can participate in the majority of Y activities (Group Exercise, fitness equipment, gym, indoor pools, etc); bring their families; and come as often as they like during the scheduled week. If an employee joins during their Try the Y Week, we'll waive the joiner fee.

Try the Y Week is a great way to kick off a corporate partnership and show your commitment to your employees' wellness!
