Peak Arts Fund launches Wednesday



The second year of the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region's annual art organization fundraiser kicked off today, with 18 nonprofits slated to receive the money.

Last year, the Peak Arts Fund pulled in $35,995 to 15 orgs, with hopes to hit a goal of $50,000 in 2013.

You can donate as much as you want, but for $60, you receive a Peak Radar Pass, which gets you discounts to restaurants and other businesses, passes or coupons to local events and more, all of which is listed online.

As before, donors can only contribute to the program as a whole, and not an individual organization; COPPeR's outlook is a holistic one, e.g., "a rising tide raises all boats." However, all underwriting and administrative costs have already been covered by the Founders Circle made up of: the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, Bee Vradenburg Foundation, Inasmuch Foundation and Kirkpatrick Family Fund.

So 100 percent of proceeds will benefit the following:

Business of Art Center

Chamber Orchestra of the Springs (new this year)

Colorado College Summer Music Festival (new this year)

Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale

Colorado Springs Chorale

Colorado Springs Conservatory

Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center

Colorado Springs Philharmonic

Colorado Springs Youth Symphony

Cottonwood Center for the Arts

Imagination Celebration

Millibo Art Theatre

Opera Theatre of the Rockies

Ormao Dance Company (new this year)

Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Festival


Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts

Velvet Hills Chorus

Also like last year, the initiative will only run through May 1.
