Access for All - Equal Membership Access


By offering rate adjustments for individuals and families with an annual household income under $80,000, My Y Scholarships are designed to make the Y affordable for all. In fact, one-fourth of Y families report household income under $20,000. No matter what income level, joining the Y allows people to become part of a community that transforms lives. When we work together to provide access for all, we move individuals, families and communities forward.

Our commitment to affordable, accessible facilities that promote healthy living is more than our mantra – it’s our mission. At the Y, the membership rates are adjusted based on income so that we are all supporting a cause greater than ourselves: we’re supporting the community.


Serving the community

At the YMCA of Greater Charlotte, we adjust our rates to income to ensure the Y is available and affordable for all. We believe that access to a healthy lifestyle should not be hindered by income. Regardless of someone’s ability to pay, the YMCA is committed to offering a safe, clean and engaging experience to grow community and transform lives for the better. It is this unique intersection of serving and welcoming that makes the Y a leader in the greater Charlotte community.
