CFRE Credits Available. Financial support. Expanded access. Increased collaboration. Learn how 300 501(c)(3) Denver cultural institutions benefit from approximately $40 million in annual taxpayer support. Since 1989, the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) has distributed funds from a 1/10 of 1% sales and use tax to cultural facilities throughout the seven-county Denver, Colorado metropolitan area. Participants will learn how and why SCFD was created, how it has evolved and what it means today - to both institutions and the general public. Panelists will draw comparisons to their own markets to determine to what extent a similar program might be replicable elsewhere.
This session has been approved for 1.5 CFRE Continuing Education credit hours.
