For a Better Future. For A Better Us.

The YMCA of Northern Colorado strengthens the foundations of community. With the help of donors, thousands of children and adults have access to opportunities that promote youth development, nurture healthy lifestyles and cultivate a sense of social responsibility. 

In 2018, the Y provided around $800,000 in financial assistance to families and individuals in need. Because of these funds, the Y is able to give children access to safe spaces and early childhood education, offer parents a support system and ensure seniors have a community connection and programs that prevent chronic disease.

The need continues. And we need your help. Donate today. For more information, contact


Colorado Child Care Tax Credit

Taxpayers who make a monetary contribution to promote child care in Colorado may claim an income tax credit of 50% of the total contribution.

Both corporate and individual donors may benefit. Taxpayers who make a cash contribution to the YMCA of Northern Colorado’s Community Support Campaign may claim an income tax credit of 50% of the total donation on their Colorado income tax return. Please check with your accountant; you may need to itemize to take advantage of this tax benefit.


$6,000 Matching Gift Challenge For Prevention & Healing Programs

An anonymous donor is matching donations up to $6,000 for YMCA of Northern Colorado Prevention & Healing Programs. That means, when you give, your donation has twice the impact. We have until April 11 to take advantage of this incredible matching gift. Hundreds of people have experienced the positive powers of these programs, including the wife of our anonymous donor, who relied on Moving For Better Balance while she fought cancer. It’s in her memory that our donor hopes to make a positive impact on the lives of others.


“We offer assistance to families so children can come to school and have a safe place and academic support. Parents can go to work knowing they have a great place for their kids.”

—Lisa, YMCA Staff Member
