Join us every Tuesday night this March at Mountain Tap Brewery for Token Tuesday! With the purchase of a beer, guests will receive a token to put in their favorite beneficiary’s box – we hope you choose us! For every token collected in our box, Mountain Tap will donate $1 to YVMCF, and the non-profit with the most tokens at the end of the month will continue to be featured on Token Tuesday throughout the month of April. Funds raised from this event will directly support Employee Wellness and Resilience at UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center. We hope you will come out and support us!

Thanks to generous philanthropic contributions from our donors as well as FY24 strategic capital, YVMC’s new CT scanner is up and running.

Thank you to the many teams who were impacted by this replacement project for their patience, professionalism and hard work. Thank you to the donors who supported this campaign in 2023!
