This year our foundation has made huge strides in its mission to increase the visibility and relevance of the Denver Mountain Parks.
We have assisted in the refurbishment of the historic shelters and well houses at North Genesee, Bergen Park, Little Park, Starbuck Park and Fillius Park and to the construction of the pedestrian bridge and bike path at Genesee Park.
We have also been busy building opportunities for more of Denver’s youth to come out and experience the mountain parks first hand, whether camping at Katherine Craig with Big City Mountaineers, conducting citizen science experiments with the Denver Zoo at Genesee, or learning with Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado.
We are indebted to the Denver Mountain Parks staff for the great work they do with limited budget and staff resources, and to our foundation’s supporters for helping us expand those resources.
This year, for the first time, you can support Denver Mountain Parks Foundation through Colorado Gives Day.
More than 1,800 nonprofits throughout Colorado are part of this annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.
While choosing between 1,800 nonprofits may sound daunting, #COgives encourages us all to “give where you live.” Might we also suggest, giving where you play!
We hope you’ll take some time to explore coloradogives.org, and commit to making contributions to groups that you believe in. You can browse organizations by zipcode, keywords or causes such as “Environment.” (You’ll be amazed by how many groups are working for our great outdoors in Colorado.)
Particularly, we hope you’ll visit Denver Mountain Parks Foundation on ColoradoGives.org to learn more about the Foundation’s programs, how we are helping the Denver Mountain Parks, and to schedule a Colorado Gives Day donation.
Even small contributions have an outsize impact when we all give together.
From all of us at the Denver Mountain Parks Foundation, thank you for your support!
