YOUR PLAN (Your Own Unique Rate)

The Barbara Bauer Briggs Family YMCA has adapted a new pricing plan that is based on household income. We are committed to providing financial assistance to those who cannot afford the full price of Y membership or programs. That’s the purpose of the Friends of Youth annual campaign. All annual campaign funds remain in our local community, giving children and families an opportunity to get involved in Y programs. Contact the Welcome Center to see if you qualify.
