Open Doors

As a charitable organization, the YMCA turns no one away for their inability to pay. We want everyone to experience the opportunities the Y provides.

Through our Open Doors Program*, YMCA memberships and programs such as after school care, youth sports, day camp, and swimming lessons are available to qualifying households at an income-based rate scale. Pre-determined monthly rates have been established in a sliding scale format. You can check your qualifying monthly membership rate using the calculator below. For more information on the Open Doors Program, visit the Member Experience Center at one of our locations or call (779) 500-0800.

 * Open Doors and financial assistance funds are available only as donation and contribution funds allow.

Anyone qualifying for Open Doors will be extended the appropriate monthly rate and enrolled immediately. Within 30 days from the start date, participants are required to provide their most recent tax return information in order to keep the Open Doors membership rate for the remainder of the year. If your information is not provided in the 30 day period your account will be charged the maximum non-refundable rate.

For after-school determinations and considerations please contact Rosie Frasca, (815) 489-1194.
