The Y believes that members are co-owners of the organization. As co-owners each member is asked to pay a joining fee as a mission investment. If you cancel your membership, you have 30 days to renew without having to pay the fee again. After 30 days, a joining fee will be reapplied. These dollars are primarily used for non-expansion capital improvements like new equipment, building repairs, and preventive maintenance.

Tiftarea YMCA programs and activities are designed to benefit persons of all backgrounds, and fees are based on the cost of providing each program. While participants are expected to pay their fair share, when financial assistance dollars are available, the YMCA will assist any individual or family that wants to participate but cannot afford the fee.
