At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Each year, we provide over five million dollars in financial assistance locally, thanks to generous gifts from our members and donors through our annual giving campaign, grants and special events.


Open Doors Membership
The Open Doors program helps make YMCA membership affordable for all through an income-based sliding fee scale. To get started:

  1. Bring your most recent 1040 tax form to the Y. (If you do not file, we will ask you to complete Form 4506-T.)
  2. Complete a short Open Doors form and we'll find the membership rate that works for you.
  3. Start enjoying your YMCA membership the same day!
