  • Pikes Peak Children's Museum

    Pikes Peak Children’s Museum (PPCM) is an emerging children’s museum in Colorado Springs. The museum is in an interesting stage — having just completed two highly successful temporary exhibits, we are ready to move into our next phase of development! This means it is time to find a permanent or preview location where the museum can open in a standalone space. To support this endeavor, we are seeking board members who are passionate about opening a children’s museum in Colorado Springs and happy to fundraise for the cause. Being part of the PPCM board is a serious commitment, especially during this phase. At a minimum, board members are expected to attend one two-hour board meeting every month, participate on one committee, and fundraise on behalf of the organization. At this point in our development, we expect board members to contribute between 5-10 hours per month to the museum. We can use people of all backgrounds, but accounting, finance, museum operations, elementary education, marketing, and nonprofit development would be particularly helpful at this stage! Most importantly, though, we are looking for people with a passion for creating a children’s museum in our community and time to offer to the cause.

  • First Summit Foundation

    We are a veteran’s nonprofit that is looking to help veterans and their families reintegrate into society and overcome life’s daily struggles through extensive wilderness exploration and endurance activities. By doing this, we encourage veterans to find their own demarcation line between war and peace. The inclusion of families is highly encouraged in order to strengthen the familial bond after a traumatic experience.

    That being said, we are actively recruiting for our board of directors. We are specifically looking for individuals with talents in the following areas; nonprofit law, fundraising experts, senior military officers/officials (active or retired) and anyone with knowledge and experience helping to grow and manage a fledgling nonprofit.
