The Imagine! Foundation

The Imagine! Foundation, established in November 2000, supports the Imagine! organization through fundraising and education. It is a 501(c)(3) organization, and its Employer Identification Number is #84-1540910.

Funds raised locally provide extensive support for the more than 2,590 people with developmental disabilities (and their families), primarily in Boulder and Broomfield Counties. The Foundation has raised more than $5.5 million to date.

Education is a crucial part of helping the community to better understand the role people with developmental disabilities play in society, what their needs are, the challenges faced by their families, and the support Imagine! provides.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who support Imagine! and the Imagine! Foundation with cash and in-kind contributions. We publish names of our donors on a yearly basis. The link below shows the list of those who donated during fiscal year 2011-2012 (7/1/11 - 6/30/12).
