Help us launch the next 20 years with the purchase of GCY Headquarters, where the magic of our expeditions begins!

GCY Headquarters is the launch point for the downstream journeys on which young people leave their parents and their phones behind. Now, with your help, we have a chance to secure a permanent home for GCY – a critical step to providing more young people with transformative outdoor experiences.

Our goal is to raise at least $150,000 for a down payment on the building, and that’s where you come in!

Why Buy?

Our goal is to purchase the GCY Headquarters in 2020 in order to:

Provide stability. A permanent home means GCY will operate in the heart of the Flagstaff community for many years to come.

Save money. Our estimated mortgage payment will be similar to our current rent. Once GCY owns the building outright, we will realize significant savings, leaving more funds to directly benefit youth!

Enable longterm growth. GCY Headquarters can be renovated to meet increasing program needs.
