Today, Pikes Peak sits in the midst of the Pike National Forest. The peak is leased to the City of Colorado Springs under a long-term agreement with the U.S. Forest Service. The city’s Pikes Peak Enterprise manages the summit complex, as well as the road to the Peak which was built in 1915 to replace a gravel track that was damaging the environment.
The Pikes Peak Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, serves as fiscal sponsor for the project, under a written agreement with the City of Colorado Springs and the project partners. As fiscal sponsor, the community foundation will facilitate large and complex gifts, pledges and gifts of stock to the campaign and provide oversight of funds donated directly to the community foundation. Campaign contributions through the community foundation are tax deductible.
Tax deductible contributions may also be made online or by check through the Pikes Peak Summit Complex Gift Trust. Please find additional details below.
