YMCA of Southern Maine

For a Better Us.™

Membership Rates

We offer several categories of membership for families and individuals to help meet the diverse needs of our community. Not sure which is right for you? Learn more about our membership types. Still not sure? Give your local branch a call to discuss your needs, or better yet, come in for a tour! Our Membership Team would love to talk with you about your goals and interests.

The YMCA is a fully inclusive organization, welcoming all in our community. 

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!

See our sliding scale below to find your monthly membership rate. 

For information on how to apply for our sliding scale rates and our Financial Assistance program, 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.  Also, note that gross household income is for the total household.
