  • Tier 1: For members who turn 65 and remain as Adult or Family members.
  • Tier 2: For members who are turning 65 and require that some financial assistance be applied towards their membership fee to help defray the cost.  This represents a reduced rate of approximately 20%. 
  • Tier 3: Members who require a deeper level of assistance may qualify for Tier 3, which involves our financial assistance program made possible through generous contributors to the Y's Annual Fund.
