The YMCA is a fully inclusive organization

This includes all income levels. To make the Y accessible to all, we offer a sliding scale rate based on household income.  We have a base rate for households earning more than $64,200 per year.  For all others, our rates slide accordingly.  This same sliding scale is available for all registration-based programs. We want to ensure that everyone is welcome and able to participate at the Y!

We're committed to making sure everyone can participate at the Y, and encourage you to apply for financial assistance if you need it. For more information, click here.  

Rates effective September 1, 2020. Joiner's fee equal to one-month's membership fee.

Please Note: All rates are determined individually. The above grid is used as a starting point, and consideration is made for extenuating circumstances. With any concerns about the amount indicated here, please feel free to ask for more information, or to discuss the rate based on other factors.

Next Steps: If you are interested in utilizing our sliding scale rates, please complete a Financial Assistance Application and bring it in to our Membership Staff when applying for a sliding scale membership. Please note that we will ask for income verification. Also, note that gross household income is for the total household. With any questions, please ask. We look forward to helping you become a member of our Y!
