The Yakima Valley Trolleys depend on volunteers and donations to keep the railroad running. We maintain the following list of specific items and services which we are particularly in need of, however other contributions are welcome as well. Keep in mind that the Yakima Valley Trolleys are a 501 (c) (3) organization and all contributions are fully tax-deductable.
Please contact us if you think you can help be a part of our effort to preserve the YVT.
Cash donations are always welcome at the donation boxes in the powerhouse. Checks can be received in the donation boxes, at the gift shop or by mail at: Treasurer, Yakima Valley Trolleys, P.O. Box 796, Yakima, WA 98907-0796. 100% of cash and check donations goes directly to the maintenance and operation of Yakima's trolleys.
Donations can also be made online using a credit card. This secure service is provided by Network for Good. A 4.75% fee is deducted for this service, but the remainder goes directly to the maintenance and operation of Yakima's trolleys.

Businesses and foundations might also consider supporting the trolleys at a higher level. Please see our page on Sponsorship and Advertising for details.
