Our vision is that every South Jeffco neighbor is a connected part our community, and benefits from our parks and recreational areas.
We’re grounded in core operating principles of community, volunteerism, and a passion for our parks and recreational areas – making South Jeffco the best place in Colorado to live. We believe strongly that our parks and recreational areas are an essential part of what makes our unincorporated community so attractive and strong – they bring our community together; they help fulfill our need to enjoy the Colorado outdoors; and they provide an enhanced quality of life for our community residences and businesses.
In line with vision, The Foothills Foundation hosts or sponsors three major community events annually to bring our community together and raise funds for the Foothills Parks and Recreational District. Combined, our hosting of the Annual Golf Tournament in June; sponsorship of Red, White & You in July, and hosting of the Summerset Festival in September help raise more than $20,000 annually for park improvement programs in support of local cultural, educational and recreational programs and activities.
Our organization is comprised of business and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to run the organization, host and volunteer at each of these three events. Additionally, we employ community volunteers from schools, churches, businesses and neighbors to help make our events successful.
