The Pikes Community Foundation is now accepting tax deductible donations to assist victims of the Black Forest Fire. The Community Foundation “Emergency Relief Fund 2013” is modeled after last year’s Waldo Canyon Firefighters Fund which received an outpouring of community support dedicated to the Waldo Canyon fire.
Pikes Peak Community Foundation traces its history back to the original Colorado Springs Community Trust which quietly made millions of dollars of grants to improve the quality of life in our community over a 70 year history of service to citizens in the Pikes Peak Region. Since 1996 the Pikes Peak Community Foundation has generated more than $100 million for a wide range of charitable purposes in our community.
Checks made payable to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation with the notation “Black Forest Fire” can be sent to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation at 730 North Nevada in Colorado Springs, Colorado 80903 or you can contribute online at www.ppcf.org and click on the button Emergency Relief Fund.
