This letter was mailed to members in April 2020.


Dear Valued Y Member,

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020 we have temporarily closed our facilities for recreational use in accordance with Washington state mandate. We miss seeing you in person and appreciate your support during this time.  

We attempted to contact you in March via email and phone to let you know about our closure and to provide instructions for keeping, holding, or canceling your membership. However, we believe we may not have your most up to date contact information in our system and so are reaching out via mail to make sure that you know what your options are.

How to Change Your Membership

If you need to update your contact information or hold or cancel your membership dues, please complete this form on our website:  

If it is difficult to access the form above, you can request to hold or cancel your membership via mail to this address:

     YMCA of Greater Seattle
     C/O Member Services
     909 4th Ave  
     Seattle, WA 98104

Please include the following information in your letter:

  • First and last name
  • Date of birth
  • YMCA home branch
  • Your request to change your membership
  • Preferred method of communication and the best way to reach you

Stay With Us, Help the Community, and Earn YBucks

We humbly ask you to stay with the Y by continuing to pay your membership dues. These dues help us ensure future viability during this chaotic time. Right now, member support means we can provide child care to families of essential workers, food support for kids, shelter and resources for at-risk youth, and outreach to vulnerable members of our community. You can learn more about that work at this link:

We couldn’t do this work without you. As a thank you for paying dues during our closure, we are offering up to $150 in YBucks per month that we are closed to use when we reopen. You have earned two months of YBucks already by paying your dues in March and April. Once we reopen, these YBucks can be used like cash on programs and even membership dues. You do not need to take any action to continue paying your dues and earning YBucks. Please note that if you cancel your membership, you will not be eligible for March or April YBucks. You can learn more about this offer here:

Thanks for staying with us if you can. There’s a bright future ahead, and the way we get there is together.


Your Friends at the YMCA of Greater Seattle
