family memberships

+pay what you can

We offer discounted memberships that are available to families that qualify for EBT and/or WIC. These memberships are available for a minimum of $20, but we ask that families give as much as they are able. Families able to pay a little more will allow us to continue our mission of providing access to play for all children in our community.

These memberships are available online, in-person, by phone, or by mail. Membership benefits will apply to the qualifying family and caregivers. Families may continue to renew at this level as long as they continue to qualify under these programs. We do not require documentation to register as a member.

 

Qualifying programs:

WIC

EBT

If you have questions about a different qualifying program, please reach out to our Membership Manager, Megan Geiken at mgeiken@grcm.org.
