Matching Challenge for the Hayden Center

The Yampa Valley Community Foundation is pleased to announce that a generous donor has agreed to match up to $2,500 in donations made to the Hayden Center campaign through March.  The Town of Hayden has been diligently working on the redevelopment of the old Hayden High School to become a multi-use community center that will immediately provide recreational services and long-term performing arts, culinary, and technical trades programs. The Center’s vision is the same as the Town’s “To be a Welcoming Inclusive Community that Honors our Heritage While Planning for the Future.”

To help fund the capital construction of this project (a three-year phased plan), the Town partnered with the Yampa Valley Community Foundation to create the Hayden Community Fund, enabling donors to receive associated tax benefits for their contributions.

Donations of at least $25 are accepted online by clicking DONATE NOW
