Matching Campaign

Thanks to the generosity of so many of you, CPI met and exceeded its matching campaign goal of $15,000 in 2021, which allowed us to raise nearly $21,000 to financially support the organization. Thank you!!

CPI is incredibly grateful to all of its supporters and as a result of your commitment to CPI, Robert Musgraves and Joan Prusse now offer us a similar 1:1 matching campaign opportunity through 2022. CPI’s goal is to raise $25,000 this year through this campaign.

2022 is an important year for CPI with celebrations of the 25th anniversary of both the Saving Places Conference and Colorado’s Most Endangered Places Program. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for CPI.

Every donation, no matter how big or small, has an incredible impact, especially this year as it holds a $1 for $1 match. 

Thank you to Bob Musgraves & Joan Prusse!

We are so close to concluding this chapter and opening a new door to the future of CPI. Thank you for all you do and all you have done for this wonderful organization.

Featured Project

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

Historic preservation has a direct economic benefit to communities and Colorado! Take a look at the 2017 study, which considered the ways adaption of historic places has a direct financial effect on the state.

This updated, most resent study, was the result of a partnership between Colorado Preservation, Inc and History Colorado, funded by a grant from History Colorado's State Historical Fund. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report document the economic benefits of rehabilitation projects, analyzes property values and neighborhood stability in local historic districts, and summarizes the increasing impact of heritage tourism, private preservation development and the success of Colorado’s Main Street program.

In a key finding, researchers determined that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado it produced $1.03 million in additional spending, 14 new jobs, and $636,700 in increased household incomes across the state!

The 2017 report also considers the important role preservation plays in helping Coloradans provide new spaces for creative communities and co-working, create and sustain meaningful places, responds to the state’s changing demographics, and addresses climate concerns.
