The YMCA is a 501 (c)(3) charitable, non-profit organization open to all people, from all backgrounds. For over 137 years, the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA has been dedicated to strengthening our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. We are a family of community-minded people dedicated to improving your overall health and well-being by nurturing your mind, body, and spirit.
Individuals will not be turned away from participating in programs, activities, and/or membership due to their inability to pay. The Y maintains a generous financial assistance program for youth, adults, and families who demonstrate financial need. Funding for this program is provided by fundraising events at the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA and community-wide donors.
