Give a Gift to the Garden!

The season of giving is upon us, and what better time to show the Garden of the Gods Park some love! The Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center is a link in a chain between the Garden of the Gods Park, the City of Colorado Springs, and the nonprofit Garden of the Gods Foundation

Let’s start from the beginning: the Visitor & Nature Center that you know and love was first created in 1995 by philanthropist, Lyda Hill, with the humble mission of maintaining and preserving the Garden of the Gods Park. Owned by the nonprofit Garden of the Gods Foundation, the Visitor & Nature Center’s mission is to provide a continuous stream of revenue to the Garden of the Gods Park while offering public education about this magnificent National Natural Landmark. A portion of every sale made in the Visitor & Nature Center – be it a movie ticket, event registration, meal, tour, or gift shop purchase – is donated annually by the Garden of the Gods Foundation to the City of Colorado Springs for the preservation and maintenance of the Garden of the Gods Park. Within this partnership between the Foundation, Visitor & Nature Center, and the City of Colorado Springs, we can all help to ensure that our beautiful Garden of the Gods Park is here to stay for generations to come.

With all of that in mind, it’s clear that the +$6 million that the Foundation has donated over the past 28 years is a product of our partnership working towards our common goal of supporting the Park and our community.

However, there’s always work to be done, and the sky is truly the limit: that’s where you come in! A donation to the Garden of the Gods Foundation is a donation to our majestic Garden of the Gods Park! From trail maintenance and updated amenities to ranger safety courses, health and safety precautions and more, every dollar is a step closer to helping us achieve the goal of being the world’s best destination, and each year brings us closer and closer! Just follow this link or click on the Foundation logo above to head to our donation page. We can’t thank you enough for your support, and on behalf of the Visitor & Nature Center and the Garden of the Gods Foundation: Happy Holidays!
