Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado $25,000 Challenge

Monday, January 04, 2010

Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado $25,000 challenge grant matches funds raised through February 24, 2010

The challenge grant awarded to the Mountain Post Historical Center Association by the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado will help to build the Mountain Post Historical Center (MPHC).

Money raised will help operations, stimulate donor base

The $25,000 challenge grant will be used to raise operating support funds. It will also act as a catalyst by adding to the Mountain Post Historical Center’s base of contributors so vitally needed to build the state of the art facility.

About the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado

The Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado was founded in 1996 as a project of the Gill Foundation with a goal of supporting nonprofit organizations that enhance quality of life throughout the state and promoting equality for all people regardless of sexual orientation and gender expression.

The MPCHA Executive Team said in a joint statement: “This is a great opportunity to enhance our fundraising efforts, the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado has an admirable track record of supporting our Soldiers”.

Dollar for Dollar match goes away next February

The MPHCA has until February 24, 2010 to match the grant. Two options qualify your donation for the dollar for dollar match:

  • Gifts from first-time donors
    Donors who increase their gifts to the MPHC

Whether you are thinking of donating for the very first time to help make the MPHC a reality, or considering an additional donation, this is a perfect time to do it as your dollars will go twice as far.

For more information about participating in this matching grant opportunity, contact Becky Bayer- Hughes, Executive Director at (719) 633-2867 or go to www.MountainPostHistoricalCenter.org
