As a mission-driven nonprofit organization, the YMCA of the Inland Northwest is committed to serving everyone in our community and ensuring they have the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive through access to our Ys. Everyone belongs at the Y, regardless of ability to pay. We believe fees should not be a barrier to participation with the Y and our Financial Assistance program enables all individuals and families to become active members and participants at a rate that fits their budgets. This program is possible thanks to the many generous donors who support the YMCA’s Philanthropy in Action – 100% of donations made to the Y help support kids, adults, and families in our local communities.
Membership For All
Our membership rates are on a sliding fee scale based on household income – designed to fit each family’s financial situation. When stated rates exceed current ability to pay, our Membership For All program is here to help. Simply give us a call or stop by any branch to schedule a meeting with a membership specialist who will work with you to find a temporary rate that meets your needs. Our team is ready and happy to assist. Household income may be shown with a copy of your most recent IRS Tax return (1040 or 1040a) to determine your adjusted monthly rate.
