When You
Refer A

Enjoy a Free Month

Members, bring a friend to join in July and enjoy a free month on us!

Playing basketball or pickleball and activities like Yoga and Water Fitness are always WAY more fun with friends! At the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette, we believe in the power of community and the benefits of staying active and healthy together. That’s why we’re excited to launch our Refer-a-Friend campaign! For the rest of the month of July, bring a friend to the YMCA, if you refer them to join the YMCA, and you’ll receive a month free! It’s our way of saying thank you for spreading the word and helping us grow our community.


YMCA Refer A Friend


How It Works:

  1. Invite Your Friend: Tell your friends about the YMCA and invite them to join.
  2. Ask them to Sign Up: When your friend signs up for a Household or Individual membership, make sure they mention your name as the referrer.
  3. Enjoy Your Reward: Once they join, you will receive a month free on your membership!
  4. Tell Your Friend: Now that they are a part of the Y family, tell them to bring a friend so they receive a free month, too!

  • A wide variety of group fitness classes.
  • Special programs for youth, families, and seniors.
  • Opportunities to connect with a supportive community.

Ready to share the YMCA experience with your friends? Start referring today and enjoy a month free! 

Invite your friend to join the YMCA and make sure they mention your name during sign-up.

Your free month will be applied to your next billing cycle after your friend joins.

12 is the limit; that's one free year! One month for every friend that you refer!

At present, there are no benefits available for non-members or non-paying members, including staff or individuals with insurance-based memberships.

Yes, we have day passes available for a fee, but we will also give out complimentary passes for friends all month!
