Why Donate?

Excelsior depends on private contributions to best serve our youth and families. When you give to Excelsior, you’re elevating Colorado communities one family at a time.

Here are a few of our greatest needs right now:

Program ExpansionExcelsior is expanding its programs with the goal of helping every youth and family that needs services. However, program costs limit capacity. For example, ten weeks of Canine Therapy costs $1000 per child, an expense that depends entirely on private support.

Youth and Family SupportExcelsior’s wraparound care approach addresses mental and behavioral health needs as well as practical needs that arise. For instance, Excelsior assists families at risk of eviction, helps pay utility bills, and assists with other practical needs when resources fall short. Excelsior’s Family Support Fund depends entirely on private donations to cover these emergency expenses.

TransportationIn-home services lead to the most lasting success for at-risk youth and families which requires Excelsior’s therapists to travel to clients’ homes as well as transport youth to various groups and activities. On average, this costs Excelsior $92/week per therapist, an expense for which Excelsior receives no funding.

Here are a few of the ways your gift can make a difference in the lives of our youth and families:

Donation levels

Our youth and families have done so much to change their lives, but like all of us, sometimes they need a little extra support. Your donation will boost them up and let them know that people do care and someone out there wants nothing from them but for them to succeed. This is an investment worth making.


Please donate to Excelsior through ColoradoGives.org. If you are making a tribute, memorial or honorary gift, please make sure you complete all of the information on the Colorado Gives website or include it when you send in your check.
