How Climb4Community Can Benefit YOU

Members who are able to pay more than basic membership rates choose their own monthly membership price, and those who need to pay less can also set their price.

There are no qualifying conditions for paying less or more** – and the people that handle the applications have been selected for their ability to keep it anonymous, inclusive, and kind.

** If under $50, individual needs to show evidence as supporting the community as well – this could be acting as a caregiver for a relative, volunteering, etc. in addition to showing significant financial need.

We are trust-based and minimally invasive. Nobody aside from the HQ team will know if you are a pay in or benefit member – but you get ALL the perks!

Climb4Community in Depth

As a company with a heritage as the country’s first nonprofit bouldering gym, community support and inclusion is our #1 priority, even as our builds and footprints get more and more expensive. In order to make our shareholders happy, our employees have a clear vision, and bring more people into the The Pad Climbing umbrella, we’ve developed a program under the guidance of Climb4Community.
