Membership AT THE Y
The heart of the YMCA’s mission is to serve all people in our community. That’s why we offer personalized, Income-Based Membership, which if qualified, gives you the opportunity to pay a monthly membership fee that matches your income.
Income-Based Membership is available for family membership plans with a household income of less than $80,000 annually and individual membership plans with a household income of less than $50,000 annually. It is a sliding scale based on your household income. If you would like to be considered for membership based on your household income, our Y staff will work with you to determine your personalized membership fees.
Donations to the YMCA's Annual Campaign from Y members, individuals and organizations make it possible for us to offer Income-Based Membership.
