How To Help



You can make a respite in the peace of mountains a reality. Financial gifts are critical to Domus Pacis Family Respite’s continued growth.

By donating you can assist our Domus Pacis community in creating more opportunities for families to renew their spirit during a much needed escape from an exhausting hospice or cancer journey.  Potential donors can 

If possible we encourage you to make a donation thru Colorado Gives because the processing fees are only 2% versus 5.9% levied by other online giving sites.  And annually, beginning on November 1st, you can pre-schedule your end-of-year donation for ColoradoGives Day, the second Tuesday of December. On that Tuesday all processing fees are waived so the full amount of your gift will be received by Domus Pacis.  Of course we welcome and appreciate any gift you contribute by Mail all year long! If a donor wishes to compare our nonprofit to other Colorado nonprofit reference the following document, A Donor's Guide to Understanding ColoradoGives Profiles.
