A community volunteer Board of Directors sets policy, gives ideas and oversees the financial decisions that govern the YMCA. The YMCA is supported by memberships, program fees and public and private contributions. As a membership organization, the YMCA is open to everyone regardless of their ability to pay. An extensive scholarship program ensures access to kids and families who could not otherwise afford the benefits of the YMCA.
