Community Support Campaign

For a Better You. For a Better Future. For a Better Us.

One in three members and participants access Y offerings with the help of financial assistance. As a nonprofit organization, we never turn away anyone based on inability to pay. 

But we need your financial support to keep that promise.

The Y’s Community Support Campaign takes place every year. Your gift to the Community Support Campaign ensures that all people have the opportunity to thrive — regardless of their financial resources.

Capital Development & Other Projects

Since 1874, the YMCA has strengthened the foundations of communities along the northern Front Range of Colorado and Wyoming. For the last decade, we have more than doubled our impact and services for children, families, adults and seniors. Today, tens of thousands of individuals from all walks of life are served annually at our six locations: Boulder, Lafayette, Longmont, Johnstown, Cheyenne, Loveland and YMCA Camp Santa Maria overnight camp in Bailey. The Y’s reach also includes countless after school care and day camp sites, pools, sports fields, gyms and more.

Capital development gifts provide the community with resources, properties and assets that make impacts long into the future. They ensure Y facilities are kept up to date, and they make sure the Y has space for life-changing programs.

The Cohagen-Platt Sports Field, Carlston Ice Arena, the Y pools, YMCA Memorial Garden and the Lafayette Y pool bubble were all made possible with capital development gifts.

The Y is currently holding a Capital Campaign to once again invest in our infrastructure and ensure YMCA facilities can serve, uplift and empower our neighbors long into the future. With the leadership of The Kellogg Organization, the YMCA is conducting a $7 million Capital Campaign to address the most pressing needs of the Boulder, Cheyenne, Lafayette and Longmont YMCAs.
