YMCA MEMBER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I still be a member of the YMCA?
Yes, you can still be a member of the YMCA. In fact, maintaining your membership helps our community during this time of uncertainty. We know your membership is rooted in the relationships you have built at the Y. Help us create a history that demonstrates how we came together and served those families who needed us most. Naturally, we will put your membership on hold if you wish, but if you want to join us in service to others, please keep your membership active.
How would I put my membership on hold?
You may place your membership on hold by contacting our Resource Operation Center at 214-880-9622.
Requests can also be submitted via email to the Resource Operation Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be no form or additional paperwork and no advanced notice is required. Your membership will automatically resume after your hold period. You must contact the email@example.com at least three business days before your next draft date if you need to extend your hold for another month.
Holds can be placed for 30 days at a time up to three times per 12-month period. This can be consecutive if needed, but you will need to submit an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org to extend past the original hold request at least 3 business days before your next draft date. Otherwise, your membership draft will resume as scheduled.
Who do I contact about my membership?
While the branches are temporarily closed, please contact the Resource Operation Center at the email and phone number listed above.
How will I know when the branches come back open?
Please visit ymcadallas.org for continued updates. In addition to our website, we will share updates via our social channels and member emails as information becomes available.
What happens with my membership if I put my membership on hold and the branches re-open?
Just let us know and we can take your membership off hold so that you can start enjoying your membership again immediately. A pro-rated fee will apply if you take your membership off hold early.
How do I cancel my membership?
We recognize this is a difficult time. If possible, we ask you to consider the work we do as a nonprofit organization. Your membership dues are the foundation of our work and will allow us to continue to serve so many in this challenging time.
Keeping your membership active will allow us to continue to support our community and employees as much as possible.
If you would still like to cancel your membership, please contact the Resource Operation Center at the contact information listed above.
