How do you tactfully offer

The mom of one of dd's friends is a SAHM whom I would like to be closer friends with. We've actually known each other since our dd's were a few weeks old when we used the same dc and spent our lunch hours nursing our dd's. I lost touch with her when dd#2 was born and we switched dc's and have always regretted letting this friendship slip away. Well, she moved into the neighborhood last year and her dd is going to school with my dd.
Here's my problem. I find myself wanting to ask her to come along when I plan activities with the girls but it seems she's broke all the time and everything I plan with my kids usually costs money. For example, my kids and I frequent the community center pool but I know the $5/person admission can be steep for her. I don't mind paying. $10 is nothing to me, really. How does one, tactfully, invite someone along to an activity that has an admission fee when you know that money may be an issue but you're willing to pay their way?
