Sterling Community Fund surpasses $2 million for local projects

The Sterling Community Fund (SCF) is an endowment created by local residents to provide a sustainable funding source for projects that make Eastern Colorado a wonderful place to live, raise a family, establish a business, and retire.

Part of the Eastern Colorado Community Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, the SCF has successfully grown to more than $2 million. The SCF can now provide grant funds of more than $100,000 annually towards the long-term wellbeing of Sterling, contributing to
projects that improve public facilities, expand recreational opportunities, and beautify our community. Incredible thanks and appreciation must be given to the donors and supporters who made this impressive achievement possible.

The future of the SCF is bright with its first impactful project currently under construction: the City of Sterling’s Heritage Park project. When complete, the park will feature a fire pit, a shaded structure, a small stage, and a Founders Wall honoring more than 350 individuals and organizations who contributed
to its development. The SCF has proudly invested more than $100,000 in the creation of Heritage Park.

The SCF is excited to announce it will be hosting its annual gala on September 10, 2022. Save the date! This past year’s gala, held in September 2021, raised approximately $430,000. Funding projects that serve to improve such a vibrant community would not be possible without this generous charitable
support.
