The Y will not deny anyone a Y Membership or participation in most activities due to lack of funds (some programs, classes or camps have a limited number of sliding fee slots). Use of the Sliding Fee Scale may be obtained by completing a Sliding Fee Scale application. The amount of assistance is determined by household size and household gross income. Adult applicants may receive assistance of 20-70% for membership and programs (55% maximum assistance for Gold or Silver Plus Nautilus memberships). Youth can receive 20-70% assistance for memberships, camps or programs. The Y reserves the right to refuse assistance to any applicant.
All applicants (15+) must pay a $10 non-refundable filing fee. First year members also pay a Health Deposit (price to be determined from percentage of assistance awarded) which will be refunded after 13 months of continuous membership. This deposit is a one-time fee as long as you stay an active member.
Once approved, arrangements will be made for you to pay your share of the membership fee by bank draft or in 10 monthly installments paid at the Y Welcome Center. If you decide the membership dues are too high for a Family Membership, please consider purchasing Youth Memberships for your children (ages 6 to 14). If you have children younger than 6 they can qualify for a percentage off the Program Associate class fees.
Please allow at least 7 to 14 working days for your sliding fee scale application to be processed by the Y to determine eligibility. You will be contacted in writing by the YMCA in Greenfield regarding the status of your application.
To see if you are eligible see the chart below and fill out an application and mail or drop it off to the YMCA.
