About Us

Our Mission

Riverfront Park Community Foundation was established in 2000 to foster excellence, diversity and opportunity in the downtown Denver community primarily in education and arts. 


Funding for the Foundation comes from a one-half of one percent (.05%) transfer assessment on real estate sales within Riverfront Park. This includes residential sales, sales of apartment buildings and sales of retail condominiums. 

The Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code.
