Support Grand Canyon Youth with any size donation... so we can keep transforming lives.

The programs at Grand Canyon Youth are valuable not only to the young people who participate, but also to the volunteers, donors, and community members who share in helping to make our mission a reality.

Grand Canyon Youth is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; donations are deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS.

Over 90 percent of our annual budget supports our programs. No donation is too small. The support we receive from donors is proportional to the number of programs that we can run and scholarships we can distribute. Learn more about our scholarship program...

$100 Partial financial aid on any of our river programs
$250 Half financial aid award on a 4-day San Juan River or program
