SPMDTU BUILDING RESTORATION FUND

SOCIEDAD PROTECCIÓN MUTUA DE TRABAJADORES UNIDOS (SPMDTU)BUILDING RESTORATION FUND 

La Sociedad Protección Mutua de Trabajadores Unidos (SPMDTU, Society for the Mutual Protection of Workers) is raising funds to begin the interior and exterior restoration and rehabilitation of its headquarters building in Antonito, Colorado built in 1925.

The SPMDTU is 117 years old and is the oldest Hispanic fraternal organization in the United States.  It was founded November 26, 1900 by Celedonio Mondragón and six others to fight discrimination in the fields, mining industry and railroads.  Also to defend their property rights.

Its building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties. 

The SPMDTU is a non-profit 501(c) (10) and donors may deduct contributions for income tax purposes.  It is soliciting funds to be used as matching funds for a grant it has received from the Colorado State Historical Fund (SHF) to restore its headquarters building.
