Open Doors Membership Program
As the nation’s leading nonprofit dedicated to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y is committed to giving everyone in our community the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive, regardless of their financial circumstances.
That’s why we offer our Open Doors Program, which offers reduced membership rates to individuals and families whose financial circumstances may not allow them to pay the full membership rate. Members who experience a temporary financial setback, such as a job loss, are also encouraged to seek temporary membership assistance through the Y’s Open Doors program. The Y can provide financial assistance thanks to caring individuals and businesses who donate to our Annual Giving Campaign.
