The Colonie Youth Center is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, therefore, we rely on private contributions to meet the growing needs of the community.
Each year we mail an annual appeal card to program participants and many other supporters. Donations can be made by check, cash or credit card.
Another way to become a supporter is to give through the United Way. If you are an employee of New York State, you can give through the SEFA campaign or if you are a Federal employee, there is the CFC campaign. Just designate the Colonie Youth Center as your organization of choice and your donation, which can be broken down into small amounts per pay period, will be sent to us throughout the year.
Many businesses become a supporter by donating in-kind goods & services. Sometimes a product can be just as valuable as a monetary donation, especially during our special events.
