Salida and Buena Vista Mentor


Donation and Support


Local donations and fundraising efforts are critical to Chaffee County Mentors because they allow us to access and leverage the grant dollars on which our program relies to offer unique activity and training opportunities for youth and mentors not typically covered in our grants.



Participate in the FYI For Kids Sake Auction and Golf Tournament
Started in 2003 as the annual fundraiser for Chaffee County Mentors, this annual event now supports all the programs of Family & Youth Initiatives. Sponsors receive marketing in exchange for their donations of $50 to $1000. Silent auction donations are also needed. Everyone in the community is invited to join in the Silent Auction Party or play in the golf tournament. Our fundraiser is held the weekend before FiBArk in Salida.

Donate Specifically to Chaffee County Mentors
We accept donations throughout the year that are specifically earmarked for Chaffee County Mentors. All donations are tax-deductible and support youth and mentor activities. Please make checks payable to Chaffee County Mentors and mail to: PO BOX 1007, Salida, CO 81201.
