Matching Campaign

You have this weblink because we consider you a member of the CPI family, whether as a past member of our staff, board, or one of our founding supporters. You have been deeply involved with this organization and know, perhaps better than anyone else, the impact CPI has had on Colorado and the role it serves in shaping the future of preservation in our state. You know first-hand the incredible dedication of its staff and board – both past and present.

We are writing you today to inform you of an incredible opportunity that will have lasting impacts on CPI. Bob Musgraves and Joan Prusse have graciously agreed to match every dollar raised through a special fundraising campaign. If CPI can raise $20,000 by December 31, 2021, Bob and Joan will match the $20,000 and offer to continue this matching opportunity for any donations made to the special campaign in the 2022 calendar year as well. 

The past couple of years have been hard on every organization and CPI has weathered the storm(s) with your help. Now we must look at moving from bare-bones survival and return to our role of providing maximum benefit to our state and our community once again. This matching campaign has the power to dramatically improve the ability of our organization to advance its mission and be on strong footing in advance of 2024, which will be the 40th anniversary of the organization!

Many of us consider CPI family; CPI runs through our blood and once you are a part of this amazing organization it leaves a lasting impression. CPI alumni span many states and organizations with all of you sharing the lessons learned and memories made with new allies in the preservation movement.

Please consider donating to this campaign today in honor of your history with CPI. Now is the time where your contribution, no matter how small, will have a significant impact.

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.

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

The 2017 update, Preservation for a Changing Colorado, resulted from a partnership between Colorado Preservation and History Colorado and Colorado Preservation, Inc. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report and accompanying website 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 found that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado leads to $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, respond to the state’s changing demographics, and address climate concerns.
