Annual Report

2019 Annual Report


In 2019, we launched an intentional focus on igniting a passion for collective giving in the Pikes Peak Region. Two funds in particular, the Community Impact Funds for Conservation and for the Arts, are two of our revitalized collaborative giving funds that continue to receive gifts from community members and are guided by a community team of grant influencers. 2019 also saw the large-scale launch of the Pikes Peak Real Estate Foundation which works with community members and fundholders who want to contribute to philanthropy in creative ways by leveraging real estate assets.

Because excellence matters

The National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations Accreditation Program certifies U.S. community foundations that meet and exceed federal and state law requirements in practice and policy.

The accreditation process is rigorous, and undertaking it demonstrates a community foundation’s commitment to accountability and excellence to its donors, its community, policymakers and the public. PPCF was awarded this designation in 2019.
