The donations are traditionally the net proceeds from the CSHOF/CHSAA “Championship Saturday,” CSHOF Induction & Awards Banquet and the CSHOF Golf Classic. However, due to the pandemic, the CSHOF Golf Classic was the only event that was held in 2020.
The CSHOF Board of Directors selected the following 11 organizations for receipt of charity donations:
- Gold Crown Foundation
- Sportswomen of Colorado
- National Sports Center for the Disabled
- Special Olympics Colorado
- Rocky Mountain State Games
- Runyon Field Sports Complex of Pueblo
- Colorado Golf Foundation
- Porter-Billups Leadership Academy
- Colorado Youth Tennis Foundation
- PeyBack Foundation
- Lindsey Vonn Foundation
CSHOF said it has donated over $2 million in cash and in-kind to youth sports and education programs throughout Colorado over the last 15 years.
“All of these organizations meet our mission of helping youth sports, education, and youth of color in Colorado, and we are happy that we can impact so many worthy programs,” said CSHOF President and CEO Tom Lawrence. “Our goal was to have an impact on as many youth sports groups, as we could, to further the goal of the Hall of Fame in improving youth sports and education in our state.”
