If you are able to help us sustain and increase opportunities for children to participate in our programs, please add an extra amount to your registration fee, make a gift online or visit any front desk to complete a pledge card to the YMCA Community Support Campaign. Your donation stays local and will help children realize their potential. If you are unable to pay the full cost of Y membership or sports program fees, please apply for assistance by downloading an Open Doors Scholarship Application (Espanol) or visiting your local Y.
