Pikes Peak Community Foundation



Working with our predeccessor, the Colorado Springs Community Trust, the Pikes Peak Community Foundation has been advancing community philanthropy since 1928.

The Colorado Springs Community Trust was founded by visionary citizens who believed that the Pikes Peak region needed a way to build a permanent charitable endowment to improve the quality of life in our community. The Trust is a collective of separate trusts managed by three local banks: US Bank, Bank One and Wells Fargo.
