Make a difference and join our mission, simply give by choosing the method that’s best for you.

Our fast-paced world needs rest, renewal, connection with each other and connection with nature.

Donations ensure YMCA of the Rockies amazing programs, staff and facilities will continue to host life-changing moments that build healthy spirit, mind and body for ALL.

To make a difference and join our mission, simply give by choosing the method that’s best for you:

  • Give online
    Online giving is as easy as online shopping.  It is secure but does incur a credit card processing fee of 2.7%.  You have the option to cover those fees to ensure that 100% of your donation goes to the YMCA of the Rockies.

    Direct Debit is another option for online giving and only incurs a processing fee of 75 cents. Give online here.
  • Become a monthly donor
    Join this important group of supporters with a monthly gift to fuel the work of YMCA of the Rockies all year long. Recurring gifts can be set up online here.
  • Give on-site at the front desk
    Are you thinking about making an in-person donation while visiting one of our properties but don’t want to forget when you go back home? Our front desk staff will be more than happy to receive your gift via card, cash, or check.
  • Mail a check
    While checks may be a foreign thought to younger generations, they are still a secure and easy way to donate.  When you mail a check to YMCA of the Rockies there are no processing fees.
