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 collabortive 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.
