In Memoriam & Honorary Gifts

As a nonprofit organization, CBR YouthConnect welcomes donations made in memoriam or honorary gifts. Through memorial contributions, friends and family can celebrate the life of a loved one who has died. Through honorary donations, people can pay tribute to friends, relatives or colleagues.

In memoriam and honorary gifts provide a lasting and useful demonstration of admiration, friendship and love. Every donation helps our youth discover a future filled with hope and opportunity.

Each time you send a gift, we will promptly acknowledge your donation and send an appropriate card to the person or the family of the person you designate. The amount of the gift is never mentioned.

You may direct your donation to a specific program at CBR YouthConnect, or you may request that your gift be used where it is most needed. All gifts are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged in The Rancher, CBR YouthConnect's quarterly newsletter.

To make an in memoriam or honorary contribution, print and fill out the Memorial/Honorary Donation Certificate. Mail the certificate with your check to:

CBR YouthConnect
P.O. Box 681
La Junta, CO 81050

Living Memorial Garden

What's beautiful, functional and meaningful? The CBR YouthConnect Living Memorial Garden.

Started in 1983 with only a few trees, the garden has since grown to more than 80 beautiful, shade-bearing trees.

Not only are the trees a thoughtful way to honor or remember friends and loved ones, they will add beauty and a sense of serenity to our campus now and for many years to come.

The trees, planted in several areas around campus, are functional, too. In the summer, they provide welcome shade from the hot sun. And when the temperatures drop, they help block the frigid winds that sometimes blow across the Colorado High Plains.

The cost of a tree and inscribed bronze plaque is $225. To order a tree, please complete the coupon below and mail it along with your tax-deductible gift to CBR YouthConnect, P.O. Box 681, La Junta, CO 81050.

For more information on the Living Memorial Garden, contact CBR YouthConnect at (719) 384-5981.

Together, we can plant a better future.
