In the 1970s, Denver's historic buildings faced the threat of demolition in epic numbers. Thanks to a determined group of concerned citizens, Historic Denver, Inc. was created just in time to save one of our city's most celebrated historic homes - that of the "unsinkable" Margaret Brown.
Our iconic landmarks and the character of Denver’s historic neighborhoods need and deserve our support. Historic Denver’s work would not continue without support from the community that values the quality of life a well-preserved city presents. Please help us preserve and promote Denver’s unique character by joining our cadre of annual supporters.
•The twice-monthly electronic newsletter
•The quarterly Historic Denver News in print
•Access to our comprehensive contractor resource list (currently provided via e-mail or mail at supporter's request)
•Invitations to tours, events and programs at historic sites across the city
•Discounts at the Molly Brown House Museum
And those supporting Historic Denver with annual gifts of $100 or more will receive additional VIP benefits, including special recognition in our newsletters and invitations to exclusive events and private tours – granting you access to historic places you’ve always wanted to explore.

Historic Denver, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit and a portion of your annual support is tax deductible. Note: As of January 1, 2011 we changed to using the term "supporter" instead of "member" to better reflect the many ways individuals contribute to our efforts and ease administrative processes. However, the same benefits you enjoyed as a member remain.
Your support now will set us on our way and make possible the implementation of several key, transformational efforts:
Each of these efforts will place the organization and our city’s historic resources on a path to a sustainable future, amplifying the preservation voice and ensuring that our legacy architecture and the local stories represented by the built environment are an essential part of our community’s growth and development.
A gift now will not only put us on our new path forward but also leverage the great generosity of long-time supporters Bob Musgraves and Joan Prusse, who have made a historic matching gift offer to Historic Denver. Any new or increased gift made to Historic Denver through October 30, 2013 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a maximum of $100,000. A new or increased gift is defined as a gift that is larger than the contribution you made to Historic Denver’s 2011 year end appeal. If you have a question about whether your gift will be matched please call (303) 534-5288 ext. 5.
You can also mail a check to Historic Denver, Inc. 1420 Ogden, Suite 202, Denver, CO 80218.
Volunteers are the backbone of Historic Denver's work, helping us to preserve and protect places that matter to our city. Opportunities for volunteers are diverse, so we hope you can find something that works for you. For more information on specific opportunities, please visit our Volunteer page.
