INCOME-BASED MEMBERSHIP

Don't let income stand in the way of a healthier you! WIth our income-based memberships, you can have all the benefits of being a YMCA member at a price you can afford.

INCOME-BASED MEMBERSHIP

INCOME SHOULDN’T BE A BARRIER

No matter what type of membership you choose, we offer financial assistance to everyone who qualifies. Using our Income-Based Rate Scale, your monthly rate may be reduced based on your annual income.  Financial assistance is available for individuals earning less than $50,000 per household per year and families earning less than $75,000 per household per year.

These discounts also apply to programs* like youth sports, child care, camp and more!

*Discounts on programs may not be immediately available, and can take up to 48 business hours to process.

*During any period of your membership, you may be asked to provide proof of income to keep your adjusted rate.  But let’s get your healthy journey started now; we’ll deal with the paperwork later!

Step 1: Choose the branch below.

This will be your “home” location.  You can use any YMCA, but your selected branch is the one you plan on using at least half the time.

Step 2: Select your annual household income.

Including income from yourself and others who work in your household.

Step 3: Choose your membership type.

You can choose from Youth, Teen, Young Adult, Young Adult +1, Adult, Adult +1, Senior, Senior +1 and Family memberships.
