Girl with basketballThe YMCA of Greater Dayton is a not-for-profit, health and human services organization committed to helping ALL people grow in spirit, mind and body. To insure that our programs and services are available for ALL, we provide membership rates based on the household income of each adult or family that joins our YMCA. Since each membership rate is based on household income, we ask that you contact your nearest Y branch and speak to the Membership Director. Contact information is available on each branch's location page - please see the locations menu at the top of this page. We offer individual, youth, young adult and family memberships.

Financial assistance is available to make a Y membership affordable to everyone! So what is holding you back?
