Without the generosity of our donors, the Y could not be a champion for parents, kids and seniors in Boulder, Weld and Larimer counties. No matter how you want to support the Y, your gift will be administered as you like — having the kind of impact you want to make in your community.

Community Support Campaign

“In Boulder, we have families that aren’t visible to average people, but they are visible to the Y.”

—Bob, YMCA Donor

Capital Development & Other Projects

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 are all made possible with capital development gifts.


Gift Matching

You can make an even greater impact with your donation by securing a matching gift from your employer. When your employer supports your charitable giving, it amplifies the impact of your gift and helps us serve more families.
