Don't forget about cultural institutions during this time of need. They've also been hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak and could use your help. You can make a contribution directly to a cultural institution by searching a list of SCFD organizations in the Denver metro area or by searching statewide through ColoradoGives. Also, if you have purchased tickets to a performance, exhibit or cultural event that’s been canceled, you can simply forgo the refund, which will help support the respective organization. The Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA) has more tips on how you can support the arts.
