What's This About?
Colorado Computer Museum is here to create opportunities for the public to experience the history of information technology, including non-computer fields that have been transformed by digital technology (which is nearly everything).
We've never had a permanent home, but a major donation may be about to enable us to have a building to house our collection, exhibits, and workshop. Becoming building owners will create the additional financial challenge of supporting the operation and maintenance of the new facility.
To this end, a long-time, trusted friend of the museum has proposed a matching grant: If we can raise $10,000 by the last day of 2021, we will receive an additional $100,000 to endow us with the ability to sustain the operation - that's a virtually unheard-of ten to one match!
The match is all or nothing; if we don't reach $10,000, then there is no match. Therefore, our goal is to raise at least $10,000 by December 31. The funds you donate will be used for operational expenses, exhibit preparation, and any other purposes approved by the Board of Directors.
