About us

The mission of the Yuma Visitors Bureau is to promote Yuma as a destination site by spreading the word about the rich diversity of our area and its history.

Existing in its present form since 1992, YVB is a nonprofit corporation that is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(6) of the federal tax code; it is not a charitable agency and contributions to YVB are not tax-exempt. YVB has nearly 400 members and 13 year-round employees, and is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

YVB activities are supported in part by a 2 percent hospitality tax collected by the City of Yuma.

YVB markets the Yuma area and its attractions within the travel and tourism industry and to the general public. YVB annually distributes more than 50,000 copies of its visitor guide, which also can be downloaded or browsed on this site (go to home page, scroll down).

YVB uses the egret in its logo because these magnificent birds have long made their home along the Colorado River. Look for our signature bird near the water: even amateurs will find their snowy plumage and regal carriage easy to spot -and hard to forget.

We are always happy to assist you with any questions or concerns.
