We are here to serve people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and incomes. We are a community-based organization with a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. We believe that our programs and services should be available to everyone. That is why we offer the Open Doors Program.
The Open Doors Program is a sliding fee scale that is designed to fit each individual’s financial situation. We believe that a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed if the recipient has contributed to the cost of their membership and/or programming; therefore you will be asked to pay some portion of the fees.
If you have a total annual household income less than $54,000, you may qualify for a reduction in rate off your monthly membership. You may also qualify to receive greater assistance for you & your family to participate in programs at a reduced rate. Just complete the financial assistance application and bring it in to the Y nearest you.
HOW TO APPLY
Complete the OpenDoors Application to initiate your request for financial assistance.
Print a copy of the form and bring a copy of your most recent tax return to the YMCA.
We can also process this without you coming to the YMCA. Just scan your packet and tax form to Monica Jones at Mjones@ymcamadco.org
Based on the information that you provide, we will determine your financial assistance and will contact you with that percentage.
WERE DO THE FUNDS COME FROM
Thanks to our generous donors, our ANNUAL SUPPORT CAMPAIGN raises more than $130,000 to fund our financial assistance programs to make the YMCA accessible to all.
