The YMCA in Greenfield Adult/Family Sliding Fee Scale Policy
The YMCA in Greenfield believes that a strong sense of belonging and pride is developed when every member has contributed to the cost of his/her YMCA involvement, therefore, we ask applicants to pay a fair portion of the fees. All applicants ages 15+ must pay a $10.00 non-refundable filing fee per application. (There is also a Health Deposit charged when you start your membership, which is refunded to you on your 14th month of continuous membership. The % of support you qualify for will be applied to the regular Health Deposit as well.)

Assistance will be granted based on household size and total household gross income. Special household expenses (ie, high medical costs, alimony, etc.) could also be a factor. Our Sliding Scale chart will be used to determine initial eligibility for one year. Depending upon gross income and number of household members, the YMCA in Greenfield can offer 20-70% off the current membership fees and 20-70% off program fees. In some instances, an interview will be required prior to the approval of this application. The YMCA reserves the right to refuse assistance to any applicant. 

If approved, arrangements will be made for you to pay your share of the membership fee. The options for payment are automatic monthly draft from your checking account, statement savings account, credit card,1/2 down and the balance due in 60 days, cash or check and paid-in-full. If these payment options are not feasible we will discuss a 10 month over the counter payment plan. Work trade is another option which can be arranged provided there is work available. Bank draft and payment plans are due on the 13th of each month. A payment missed will need to be rectified by the last day of that same month. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of the membership on the first day of the following month. The membership will be reinstated without a new Sliding Fee Scale application and filing fee if the dollars due are paid within one month of cancellation. Reinstatement at any time in the future would require payment of balance due in full, application and filing fee and repayment of the Health Deposit.  Please allow 7-10 working days for this application to be processed and approved (or denied) by the YMCA. You will be contacted in writing by the YMCA in Greenfield as to the percentage of assistance you have been awarded.
