Historic Shelters Capital Campaign

Nov 4, 2020Projects

We have worked with Denver Parks and Recreation to identify and prioritize fundraising for the most critical historic preservation projects throughout the mountain park system. As of January 2017, approximately 40% of identified projects have been completed, representing $607,930 of completed work on the way to an estimated $1,515,000 for the full shelter campaign.

In addition to fundraising, the foundation works to leverage strategic investments and partnerships that allow donor contributions to be doubled and tripled by matching contributions and in-kind donation of professional services.

Our campaign has dramatically increased the pace of restoration of historic structures while also bringing renewed departmental resources and staffing to help maintain and restore the 14,000+ acre mountain park system.
