Want to give money to help Rockledge Ranch? The Starsmore Discovery Center? Buses? Now you can.
The city started a fundraising campaign to try to raise money for the places and services people care about. It's called the "My Community Investment Campaign." Donations will go toward the park department and transit services that will be cut in 2010.
"I'd like to end this by issuing a challenge to individuals and businsses and community coalitions and in particular my fellow elected officials in El Paso County," said Councilman Darryl Glenn. "This is an opportunity where you can show some leadership and pick a particular area that you're concerned about and get out there and use your bully pulpit."
Donations are non-refundable and tax deductible. Checks can be made out to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, 730 N. Nevada Ave., Colorado Springs, CO 80903. They should be made payable to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation for the benefit of the "My Community Investment Campaign." Donors can earmark it for a specific program in the notes.
