Save Part of Estes Park History!
Please help us save the historic Stanley Home, and consider a donation today! Your generosity will enable us to purchase and preserve this local treasure.
The Acquisition Capital Campaign of 2019
The Board of Directors and a great many campaign volunteers will endeavor to secure the necessary funds in 2019 to purchase, renovate, and furnish the Stanley Home in 2019.
This campaign is nothing less than an effort to not only preserve the preeminent historic residence in Estes Park for public use, but will also pay homage to the inestimable value of the contributions of F.O. and Flora Stanley to this town and to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Donations to the campaign are tax-deductible due to the Foundation’s status as a 501 (C) (3) entity. In the very unlikely event that the home can’t be purchased, donations held in trust will be returned to donors.
Following are the estimated sources and uses of campaign gifts:
Anticipated Sources of Funding
|Donations from lead individuals||$500,000|
|Donations of individuals under 100,000||$650,000|
|Total Sources of Funds||$1,950,000|
Anticipated Uses of Funding
|Purchase of the home, carriage house, and structure for gift shop and office||$1,300,000|
|Purchase of the two tracts of open space||$400,000|
|Purchase of the furnishings including items original to the 1904 home||$100,000|
|Administrative and fundraising costs||$150,000|
|Total Funds to be Used||$1,950,000|
The purchase of the Stanley Home will honor the legacy and legend of the Stanleys, to the benefit and enjoyment of generations to come!
Closing on the purchase is anticipated by September 2019.
