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 receive and account for all gifts to the campaign, make distributions for campaign expenses, and provide quarterly reports on fund activity. Campaign contributions will be tax deductible.
