Colorado State Parks

Expanding the Role of the Foundation for Colorado State Parks

Grant: $30,750

The Division of State Parks has been confronted with significant financial challenges over the last two years, due in great part to the full reduction of General Fund support, as well as diminishing funding from Severance Tax. As a result, the Division has had to resort to reactive measures such as increasing fees and "repurposing" several parks to meet tighter budget realities. While an acceptable, though less than palatable, strategy in the short term, the need to develop long-term reliable sources of financial support has become imperative. While the FCSP has been a long-standing and critically important contributor to Colorado State Parks, the Division requested that the FCSP partner with the Division in determining how the FCSP could increase its ability to provide funding for programs and projects in support of the Division.

 

Based on this request, the FCSP invested $30,750 to conduct a thorough strategic planning process focused on developing a clear vision, cases for support, role for board, staff, and Division, additional staffing needs, funding goals, and overall outcomes and desired impact. The FCSP developed a RFP (request for proposal) to send to local nonprofit consultants and ultimately had the consultant develop the strategic planning process and outline subsequent action steps for the FCSP to implement.
