A gift to TFOCC is a gift to yourself and others


The holiday season is the time of giving, and The Friends of Cheyenne Cañon (TFOCC) are asking for your gift — with a twist we’ll tell you about shortly.

The donations you make to this non-profit group provide funding to help maintain North Cheyenne Cañon Park, to operate programs and to install exhibits in the newly dedicated visitor center.

You may recall that last September TFOCC dedicated the newly constructed Helen Hunt Falls Visitor Center, affectionately referred to as the “Cub.” The keys to the building were handed to the City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Division. Accompanying the keys was the promise that TFOCC would help fill the building with interesting displays about the history of the park and the natural wonders within its boundaries.

In addition TFOCC will continue its valued partnership with the City to provide funding for trail maintenance, staffing and programs at both Starsmore Discovery Center and the Cub. If you’ve been to the park, you know it is much like a smaller national park right in our city.

TFOCC has set a goal of raising $90,000 this year to support the park and the programs. That’s a lot of money, but it can be done. The group has already received $52,500 in grants from the Springs Beer Fest, Anschutz Foundation, and the Carma Fund at the Pikes Peak Community Foundation.

So here’s the twist – when you make a donation to the Friends of Cheyenne Cañon you are making a gift to yourself. Your donation will enhance your visits to North Cheyenne Cañon with better trails, educational exhibits or more programs.
