Partners for a Stronger Community

Helping people make a difference in the lives of others.

Vision: The Summit Foundation is recognized as the leading philanthropic

Dear Friends of The Summit Foundation:

organization for Summit County and its neighbors. We are committed to

How The Foundation has grown since we opened our doors in 1984! As I look back on the past 30 years, I recall the ups and downs of the economy, the neighborhoods that grew, the friends we’ve made and the powder days we’ve shared. Through it all, one thing hasn’t changed: the solid commitment of our local citizens and businesses to make Summit County an even greater place.

creating ever better mountain communities by providing leadership that results in improving the quality of life for residents and guests.

In 2014, the generosity of this community soared to new heights: The Summit Foundation distributed $2 million to 94 local nonprofit agencies that serve our neighbors in countless ways. In addition, a record $230,000 in scholarships was awarded to 99 students. We continue to enjoy a thriving partnership with our ski area partners, who provide the Patron Pass Medallions (all 301 sold out again). Our many friends responded to annual requests for contributions, existing and new contributors signed up to donate a portion of their paychecks through the Employee Giving Program, and a growing number of you connected with us through Colorado Gives Day in December. As we look forward to many more decades helping our community thrive, an increasing focus has been to encourage planned giving through our Peaks Society, in which donors name The Summit Foundation in their estate. We were especially honored by a generous gift from the estate of Norman L. Ringhand, a long-time Frisco resident who passed away unexpectedly last April (see page 25 for more information about this important legacy). This gift, and others like it, will allow The Foundation to continue its important work now and in the future. The Summit Foundation moved its offices to the newly-opened Breckenridge Grand Vacations Community Center on Harris Street in Breckenridge. The renovation of this historic icon is a perfect example of collaboration among government, non-profits and business to preserve our heritage and enrich our community. Please come by our offices for a look! Finally, we bid farewell to Lee Zimmerman, who is retiring as Executive Director after eight years. During Lee’s tenure, both donations and disbursements more than doubled. He also helped oversee Foundation initiatives for the Pre-Collegiate Program and the CATCH Afterschool Program. Lee has been a true friend to the community and his leadership and kind demeanor will be truly missed. Looking ahead, we are pleased to welcome our next Executive Director, Jeanne Bistranin. A Colorado native, Jeanne comes to us with a wealth of experience gained at Adolph Coors and US WEST Foundations, and I hope you have a chance to meet her soon. Thank you for a successful and impactful year from all of us at The Summit Foundation. Sincerely,

Kevin McDonald

With a grant from The Summit Foundation, the Summit Concert Band hosted Music at the Summit Adult Band Camp in June 2014. Held at the Riverwalk Center, the culminating concert was enjoyed by more than 650 people. While there are many opportunities for citizens to hear musical performances in Summit County, The Summit Foundation helped provide a unique opportunity for over 65 adults from 17 states to participate in Adult Band Camp and provide free performances to locals and visitors alike. One participant wrote: “We love Music at the Summit. Everything about it was wonderful - music selection, conductor, housing, events, location, and all the people there! We definitely will attend again!” – William Biggs Vice President, Summit Concert Band

Helping families gain access to early childhood education by providing much needed tuition assistance reduces the stress of financial concerns and engages parents earlier in their child’s education. Every tuition dollar provides for quality teachers, first-rate instruction and healthy, safe learning environments. Summit School District’s Early Childhood Program provides enriching, developmentally appropriate experiences for young children, including those with educational challenges or who need extra support in order to be ready for school. The program empowers and supports families as partners in education and collaborates with the community in providing services to these children and their families to ensure future educational success. Summit School District serves more than 160 young children in nine preschool classrooms. The purpose of the preschool program is to serve children ages 3 to 5 years old from diverse backgrounds who have identified disabilities. Each of the programs have received the highest quality rating by the state, ensuring that the littlest learners in Summit are getting the best possible start to their education. The Summit Foundation is a valued partner in helping us support families and build a better, stronger community. - Dr. Heidi Pace Superintendent, Summit School District Additional funding and collaborative support for the Summit School District Early Childhood Program comes from Summit County Head Start Program, Colorado Preschool Program, Colorado Child Care Assistance Program and the Family & Intercultural Resource Center.

The Summit County Rescue Group (SCRG) has relied for many years on four All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) to help in searches and, in some instances, allowing rescuers to directly access critically injured patients in the backcountry. ATVs are also often used to shuttle rescuers up unimproved roads and trails to where they can start hiking, shaving miles (and hours) off a search. However, having only four ATVs directly limited the efficacy of any response. To enhance SCRG’s capability to quickly field responders, the team requested funding from The Summit Foundation that would help in the purchase of an additional ATV. This particular vehicle would also be sufficiently powerful that it could pull the Orion (a shock mounted trailer that will take a patient, paramedic/ EMT, and medical equipment). Thanks to generous grants from the Highlands at Breckenridge Advised Fund and The Summit Foundation, the ATV was purchased and immediately placed into service. It was used on several missions during 2014, by far the busiest year for SCRG since its inception in 1973. Once again, The Summit Foundation’s grant funds are helping save lives in Summit County.

Colorado Fourteeners Initiative (CFI) thanks The Summit Foundation for many years of generous financial support towards our trail construction, maintenance, restoration and hiker education work on Quandary Peak.

seven projects, volunteers contributed 719 hours in trail maintenance and vegetation restoration that provided an in-kind value of more than $18,000. CFI’s crews put in an additional 208 hours protecting the peak. This Volunteers also helped transplant alpine plants into areas of the trail that had grown excessively wide.

Quandary Peak, one of five test locations across the state. The trail counter allowed for hour-by-hour counts of passing hikers 24/7 during the busiest months of the hiking season. The trail counter tells us that Quandary may be the second most frequently climbed 14er in the state, with an annual estimated total of 18,000 to 20,000 summit attempts.

A grant from The Summit Foundation is what literally helped “turn the lights on” in this facility and provide year-round baseball practice facilities to over 100 Summit County youth. In 2014, with further help from The Summit Foundation, turf and cages with netting were added in the Training Facility. Additional equipment and instructional aides were also purchased. The Training Facility offers baseball camps during school breaks and allows local competitive travel teams the ability to practice in the still snowy Spring months. The facility also serves as a place for any child to practice, no matter what level they plan to compete at. In 2014, the 10U team from Summit Extreme was the 2nd runner up in the UAAA Tournament for the state of Colorado. Summit Extreme and SYBS and we credit much of this success to the support of The Summit Foundation in providing these youth a practice facility that they can use, no matter what the weather is. “Playing baseball has helped me learn to get along with kids from different abilities and mindsets. This is a thinking game and it has really taught us to have to think together if we want to win.” – Jack Taylor Student, Upper Blue Elementary School 10U Summit Extreme Team

The Summit Foundation awards three-year grant to Lake County PreCollegiate Program The Lake County School District is advancing college and career readiness for students through the Lake County Pre-Collegiate Program. Although post-secondary readiness has been on the radar in Leadville for many years, the reality of having a sustainable program began in March 2014, when members of the Leadville community came together to develop the Pre-Collegiate Action Team. After several months of research, the group concluded it was most interested in developing a program modeled after the Summit County Pre-Collegiate Program. Thanks to a three-year commitment by The Summit Foundation, Colorado Mountain College, and the Lake County School District, funding was secured and a program coordinator, Kelly Hofer, was hired. Since the program’s inception in Fall 2014, Kelly has been focusing on program development and student recruitment. She is actively enrolling students for Fall 2015, as well as for the summer Pre-Collegiate Residential Program at CU Boulder. The Pre-Collegiate Program will work with students in grades seven through 12 to offer comprehensive post-secondary preparation. Assistance with college and career exploration, college admissions processes, and financial aid will be provided. The Lake County program will also consist of a mentoring and tutoring component to enhance student enrichment. The Lake County School District, students, and families are thrilled to have this additional resource. The Pre-Collegiate Program will help Lake County students know that they are capable of going to college, that college is affordable, and that, yes, their dreams can come true.

The Summit Foundation Takes Initial Steps to Restructure Grant Process and Measure Outcomes Throughout 2014, The Summit Foundation’s Board of Trustees worked diligently to identify ways the organization can restructure grantmaking and better measure the impact and outcomes of grant allocations. With the guidance of Mission Spark, a consulting firm specializing in this area, board members reviewed best practices in grantmaking and outcome measurement and met with donors, board members and area nonprofit organizations to identify outcome measurement processes that would provide information on the impact of The Summit Foundation grants and the corresponding programs of our community nonprofits.

The overall intent of this initiative is to better quantify the impact of our grants - ultimately to grant smarter. We anticipate that this Initiative will enable The Summit Foundation to better demonstrate the impacts of our grants to our donors and communities, as well as to measure how well we are performing against our stated Mission of “…improving the quality of life…in Summit and neighboring Communities.”

As a result, The Summit Foundation redefined the funding categories into five key “impact areas”. Through these impact areas, The Summit Foundation intends to be able to measure and communicate the impact of our grantee initiatives.

The full implementation of this Outcomes Measurement Initiative will be gradually and carefully phased in over several grant cycles.

New Impact Areas Current Grant Categories that may fit in the respective Impact Area Foster Healthy & Safe Communities Health & Human Services Create Bright Futures for Children & Youth Education, Health & Human Services, Sports & Recreation Encourage Community Engagement & Enrichment Art & Culture Create Thriving Adult Communities Education, Health & Human Services, Sports & Recreation Promote Environmental Stewardship Environmental Stewardship 13 |

For more information on these impact areas, and their effect on grant applications, contact Executive Director Jeanne Bistranin at 970-453-5970.

YOUTH GIVING COUNCIL / $19,805 GRANTED Comprised of students from the Summit High School Leadership class, the Youth Giving Council was created by The Summit Foundation in Fall 2012. Since inception, over $38,000 has been distributed by students to organizations and groups that support Summit County youth. The group focuses on teaching youth about philanthropy while allowing high school students to participate in the grant process.

Family & Intercultural Resource Center – Cooking Matters class for 15 youth. Friends of the Summit County Libraries – Summer Reading internship program. Frisco Elementary School/Silverthorne Elementary School Counseling – Buddy Bench program. High Country Conservation Center – Composting in the Schools internship program.

In December 2014, members of the Youth Giving Council and Elisabeth Lawrence, The Summit Foundation Events & Marketing Coordinator, presented at the Colorado Association of School Boards Conference. The conference was held at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs and had representatives from school boards across the state of Colorado. The Youth Giving Council presentation focused on why youth philanthropy is important and ways to start a youth based philanthropy group. 2014 Youth Giving Council members included Levi Ascher, Valentina Blass, Jamie Byers, Emily Carlson, Meagan Collins, Morgan Courtney, Brian Curnutte, Rachel Fitch, Diana Gasiouk, Natalie Gray, Drew Hartley, Megan Heil, Genna Hiller, Sam Hull, Blair Huntley, Tom Kalina, Kaleigh Klass, Claire MacMurray, Joy Manguso, Cait McCluskie, Maddie O’Malley, Max Ortiz, Bailey Radek, and Josue Razo.

Thanks to more than 2,400 donors, $1.7 million was contributed to The Summit Foundation’s operating fund in 2014.

A bequest is one way to leave a legacy gift to your community. A bequest is simply a gift you make through your will or trust which indicates your desire to leave something of value toward The Summit Foundation’s future work. A charitable bequest can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of the value of your total estate, a particular asset, a gift of stock or life insurance or even real estate. The Peaks Society of The Summit Foundation was established to honor and recognize the generosity and foresight of individuals who have planned for the future by designating a gift in their estate to meet ongoing community needs.

A planned gift may also be made through your IRA, a qualified retirement plan, life insurance, or a trust and your gift may be a percentage of your estate or a stated dollar amount.

Naming The Summit Foundation as a beneficiary in your will, trust, retirement plan, or insurance policy can be the simplest gift to permanently link your long-standing support to The Summit Foundation.

Some planned gifts can even provide an income stream to you or the person you designate, and may generate a current income tax deduction for you, the donor. In many cases, making a charitable planned gift can help your loved ones offset estate taxes.

The Peaks Society celebrates those who have made a commitment to The Summit Foundation to continue to support charitable causes after their lifetimes. Thank you to these individuals who have let The Summit Foundation know of their planned gift intentions. We hope others are inspired by their example. Current Members of The Peaks Society include:

Kenneth and Lauren Adams Jeanette Albert≠ Arthur and Pamela Albin Rae Anderson Mike and Maureen Bartel Larry Beebe Marilyn Beebe Bill and Lynne Byrne Howard and Sue Carver Tim and Patti Casey Cary and Marsha Cooper Robert and Nancy Follett Tim and Ann Gagen Jerry and Marge Gavenda Bob and Elly Gordman Robert Graham Fred and Judy Green Jim and Kathy Grotemeyer Rick and Linda Hague

Gifts of all shapes and sizes are welcome. The spirit behind every gift is the same. If you have made a charitable estate gift to The Summit Foundation, or are considering making a planned gift to recognize The Foundation, please consider informing The Summit Foundation so we may also recognize you as a member of The Peaks Society. Beyond preparing a gift to The Summit Foundation and informing us, members have no obligations. To learn more about planned giving and/or The Peaks Society, contact The Summit Foundation’s Director of Development Kasey Provorse.

Thank you for considering The Summit Foundation in your legacy planning.

In 2014, nine donors notified The Summit Foundation of their planned gift intentions, increasing membership in the Peaks Society by 35 percent.

This estate gift has been dedicated to a new board-designated fund within The Summit Foundation’s Endowment Fund, The Peaks Society Fund, which recognizes the legacy of individuals like Norm that have made planned gifts to The Summit Foundation. The Peaks Society Fund will make annual distributions of 5.0%

IN MEMORIAM: Norman L. Ringhand Leaves his entire estate to The Summit Foundation In 2014, The Summit Foundation began accepting a significant gift from Norman L. Ringhand. Norm Ringhand passed away on April 7, 2014 at his home in Frisco, Colorado. He was 71 years old. He left his entire estate, valued over $1 million, to The Summit Foundation.

of the value of the Fund (determined by the Fund value at The Summit Foundation’s fiscal year end, currently September 30) in grants to local nonprofit organizations. Through this Fund, disbursements to nonprofit organizations will be augmented in semi-annual grant cycles and the Grants Committee will be encouraged to make recommendations to the Board of Trustees on the greatest needs in the community.

Norman graduated from the University of Montana in Missoula with a B.S. in Forest Management in 1966. He entered the army in service to his country through the ROTC program as a 2nd Lieutenant on Aug. 2, 1966, where he served in Vietnam as part of the Army Corps of Engineers as a combat engineer until his honorable discharge on Aug. 21, 1968, as a 1st Lieutenant. Norm received many honors including the Purple Heart for a wound he received during his service. After positions in Madison, Wisconsin and then in Santa Fe, N.M., Ringhand relocated to Frisco in 1978 where he worked for Robillard and Associates. After Robillard, Norm created Ringhand Engineering and Management and through this enterprise he served as the District Administrator of the Snake River Water District in Keystone. He worked for the district from 1984 to 2002. During his tenure, the River Run Base area at the base of Keystone was developed. Lt. Norman Ringhand was proud of his military service. He always flew the flag above his front door. Norm always wore his dog tags and some medals on Veteran’s Day. His friends would often hear stories of his service. Norm also loved cars. During his early years in Frisco he purchased a Model T from a friend. He enjoyed his cars a great deal and would drive them during parades and take his nieces and nephew for rides. He eventually donated his Model T to the Frisco Historical Society.

This Fund allows immediate community impact for those who make planned gifts to The Summit Foundation, particularly when the donor has not communicated to The Summit Foundation a specific intention for their gift. Proceeds received through bequests, stock transfers, annuities, trusts, retirement plans or insurance policies may be directed to The Peaks Society Fund. In addition, donors may choose to designate any remaining assets in their donor advised funds to roll into The Peaks Society Fund after their death. The Summit Foundation is honored by the generosity of Norm Ringhand and 60 others who have notified The Summit Foundation of their planned gift intentions. The Summit Foundation invites others to follow Norm Ringhand’s legacy in dedicating these kinds

of gifts to The Summit Foundation.

profound philanthropy deserves profound recognition The cornerstone of The Summit Foundation’s fundraising efforts is the Patron Pass program, anchored by transferable season ski passes generously donated by: Arapahoe Basin Ski Area Beaver Creek Resort Breckenridge Ski Resort Copper Mountain Resort Keystone Resort Vail Mountain

Ski Resort Contributions Build a Stronger Community Thanks to the generosity of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Beaver Creek Resort, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Copper Mountain Resort, Keystone Resort and Vail Mountain, the Patron Pass Program has been the cornerstone of the fund-raising efforts for The Summit Foundation. The contribution of transferable ski privileges has created a partnership between The Summit Foundation, Vail Resorts, Copper Mountain Resort and Arapahoe Basin, and illustrates the commitment each of the ski resorts provide to support vital and treasured services in our community. The partnership translates into participation by ski area representatives being part of the grant award process and giving back to the Summit County community. Anchored by the transferable skiing privileges, which are provided complimentary to The Foundation from the above resorts, the Patron Pass Program earned $1 million in funding for The Summit Foundation in 2014. This funding represented a significant portion of the $2.2 million awarded by The Foundation and its partners in 2014. As the 2014/2015 season began, the 301 passes allocated to The Summit Foundation were fully committed for the third year in the organization’s history. In December 2013, the ski areas allocated one additional medallion to The Summit Foundation specifically to raise funds for the Youth Giving Council’s mini-grant allocations. This allocation continued for the 2014/2015 season. The Summit Foundation is extremely grateful to the ski areas for extending this additional pass and providing a specific purpose for its revenue. The Summit Foundation thanks the ski areas and all of our donors for your commitment to our community and the support received by The Summit Foundation through the Patron Pass Program.

For more information on the Patron Pass Program and additional benefits offered by the program, contact The Summit Foundation’s Director of Development Kasey Provorse or visit summitfoundation.org.

Donor Advised, Scholarship and Agency Endowment Funds Since 1999, The Summit Foundation has been honored by the establishment of more than 40 Donor Advised, Scholarship and Agency Endowment Funds. Establishing an advised fund allows donors to make a gift to The Summit Foundation and then remain actively involved in suggesting charitable causes

In 2014, the following funds were held within The Summit Foundation’s endowment fund. Donor Advised Funds – families The Brown Family Foundation Advised Fund Brunetti Family Advised Fund The Howard and Sue Carver Health Care Fund The Dobbs Family Fund The Dudick Family Advised Fund Finkel Family Advised Fund Follett Advised Fund Hankison Family Advised Fund The Keltner Family Fund The Lenzmeier/Williams Advised Fund Louis Family Advised Fund The Millisor Family Fund Michael C.

donor advised funds

to designate gifts. By creating a donor advised or

scholarship fund, a donor receives many benefits similar to those of a private charitable foundation but without the costs, administrative responsibilities and government reporting requirements.

In addition to donor advised funds, The Summit

Foundation administers agency endowment funds and dedicated funds for various organizations. These funds provide the opportunity for named

organizations to receive annual income from these

“endowed” investments, while providing a nest egg for the organization into the future. Such funds may be established within The Summit Foundation and are invested and managed in accordance with

Donor Advised Funds – businesses/organizations The Aspen Leaf Foundation Breckenridge Grand Vacations Advised Fund The Breckenridge and Keystone Ski Resort Advised Fund The Highlands at Breckenridge Advised Fund PeakOne Surgery Center Advised Fund The Brian G.

managed by financial experts and monitored by The Summit Foundation’s Finance and Investment Committee and the Board of Trustees.

Eight funds were established with The Summit Foundation in 2014.

The Summit Foundation’s insight and involvement with the nonprofits in our community is invaluable and was a deciding factor for me in establishing a donor advised fund with The Foundation…I appreciate that The Foundation will let me know of opportunities to make an impact in our community as they see gaps in areas that I have interest. – Michael C.

The Summit Foundation raised $195,000 in net revenue through its fund-raising events in 2014. For many years, The Summit Foundation’s events have served as the entry point for involvement with The Foundation. The Foundation’s primary


events in 2014 were a 30th Anniversary Celebration, Kentucky Derby Party, Annual Golf Tournament, Great Rubber Duck Race, and Parade of Homes.

30th Anniversary On March 29th, 250 people filled the Silverthorne Pavilion to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Summit Foundation. Guests enjoyed delicious desserts from Butterhorn Bakery, Dining Redefined, Higgles Ice Cream, Keystone Resort, and Sugar. Remarks were made by Executive Director Lee Zimmerman, current Board of Trustees President Kevin McDonald, and past Presidents Larry Beebe and Meg Lass. The lobby was filled with 30 years of memorabilia, including scrap books and all 30 years of Patron Pass medallions. The 6 Million Dollar Band performed fun 80’s hits and kept the crowd dancing with their high-energy performance. The Foundation is grateful to all who came and supported this great event. On April 30th, Which Wich and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in Silverthorne donated 30 percent of their day’s sales – nearly $1,000 – to The Summit Foundation. Various businesses from throughout the county ordered lunch for their employees and the staff of The Summit Foundation delivered lunches to their respective workplaces. Throughout the lunch hours, the entire restaurant filled with Summit County locals who dined in support of The Summit Foundation. The Summit Foundation thanks Kelsey and Seth Lyons, owners of Which Wich and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Silverthorne, for their generosity in honoring our 30th Anniversary.

In 2014, $195,000 in net revenue was raised through The Summit Foundation’s fund-raising events.

Annual Golf Tournament The Summit Foundation hosted its 27th annual Breckenridge Grand Vacations Golf Tournament in early June. Saturday evening began with a Welcome Party dinner and Calcutta auction hosted by Vail Resorts Epic Promise. Skyy Vodka provided spirits to enjoy the evening while former Denver Broncos running back, Reggie Rivers, emceed the lively auction. Breckenridge Mayor John Warner hosted a breakfast on Sunday morning prior to the shotgun start. All 144 golfers, many from out of state, completed 18 holes of scramble tournament play at Breckenridge Golf Club where an unfortunate low temperature of 37 degrees was accompanied by wet and windy weather. The victors were repeat champions, Team Assurance’s David Suchomski, Doug Suchomski, Josh Knipp, and Jake Himmelman. Players enjoyed a delicious on-course BBQ provided by John Daisy of Fatty’s Pizzeria and the Breckenridge Restaurant Association.

Kentucky Derby Party Over 100 people supported The Summit Foundation on May 3rd at Blue River Bistro in Breckenridge at its 6th Annual Kentucky Derby Party. The event featured a VIP party with a scrumptious Southern buffet and unlimited mint juleps. Attendees wore their best Derby attire (hats included!) and came to cheer on the horses.

WAYS TO GIVE Making a gift to The Summit Foundation can be as simple as writing a check or attending an event hosted by The Foundation or as sophisticated as designing an individual estate plan. Many charitable giving options are noted here. These gifts can be made through specific programs like those noted below. More details on each of these opportunities can be found by visiting summitfoundation.org.

annual gifts

ANNUAL GIFTS Outright Gifts

Cash, check, credit card, and stock contributions are the most common ways to give. These donations, which offer maximum tax advantages, are accepted throughout the year and may be designated to the annual operating fund or The Foundation’s Endowment Fund.

Patron Pass Program Fully transferable ski privileges generously provided by Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Copper Mountain Resort, Keystone Resort, Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek Resort is at the heart of this program. Complimentary golf and Nordic skiing, as well as discounts throughout the county for lodging, dining, services and activities are also offered through the program.

Employee Giving Program More than 25 businesses partner with The Summit Foundation to encourage their employees to pledge a payroll deduction to benefit The Foundation. In many cases, the company matches the gifts designated by individual employees. The Foundation welcomes additional partnerships with employers throughout the community.

Special Events & Projects The Foundation raises monies through a variety of special events and projects each year. Become involved by sponsoring, volunteering, donating products or services, or by simply attending one of these events. These include an annual golf tournament in June and the great rubber duck race the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. The Summit Foundation is also recognized as the beneficiary of the Breck Crest Mountain Marathon and Summit County Builders Association’s Parade of Homes. Annually, The Summit Foundation hosts a grant and scholarship reception in June and a celebration of Philanthropy Awards in November.

Celebrating 30 Years

Designated Fund A designated fund is traditionally created to benefit a particular nonprofit organization. The fund is created in the initial donor’s name or in the name of the designated organization and allows contributions from additional donors. A spending policy could state that an annual grant to the designated organization would be paid equal to a certain percent of the principal value of the fund based on a four-year moving average. Other spending policies or formulas may be created upon development of the initial designated fund agreement.

Do you dream about doing more for your loved ones AND for the causes you care most about? Making a planned gift to The Foundation can provide significant tax benefits, while also permanently linking your long-standing support to The Summit Foundation. Following are a variety of tools for giving that will make a lasting difference

Donor Advised Fund A Donor Advised Fund is a simple, flexible way for a donor to provide a major charitable gift to The Summit Foundation. It is a gift that can be made in a l ump sum, over a period of time or through a bequest. A minimum of $25,000 is gifted to The Foundation and invested with The Foundation’s other Endowment Funds by professional portfolio managers. Gifts are distributed from the income, in accordance with the donor or representative’s “advice”, to charitable organizations. Up to 50 percent of the Donor Advised Fund distributions may be designated outside The Summit Foundation’s geographic distribution area of Summit County and our neighboring communities.

Field of Interest Fund A field of interest fund may be established for the benefit of certain nonprofit organizations delivering specifically defined services, such as a Fund for Arts in Breckenridge. The fund is created in the initial donor’s name or in the name of the type of services (field of interest) it was designed to support. Contributions may be accepted from additional donors. Spending formulas may be created upon development of the initial agreement. A committee might oversee the distributions.

Scholarship Fund


A scholarship fund may be established with a minimum contribution of $10,000 (contribution may be made over several years) to support post-secondary education for local high school graduates. The Summit Foundation assists with collecting student scholarship applications and the review of applicants to make a recommendation that meets the qualifications agreed upon by the donor(s). Scholarships are distributed directly to the institution selected by the scholarship recipient.

Naming The Foundation as the beneficiary in your will, trust or qualified retirement plan can be the simplest gift. Because these assets often carry a heavy income tax obligation to your heirs, they can be a particularly attractive source for funding your charitable gifts.

Agency Endowment Fund A collective group of donors, an individual or couple, or a nonprofit organization may establish an agency endowment fund with The Summit Foundation. Agency endowment funds are established by donors who wish to benefit a particular charitable organization. Established with a minimum contribution of $10,000, agency endowment funds are held and managed by The Summit Foundation on behalf of these nonprofit organizations. The funds are invested with The Summit Foundation’s endowment assets and the designated nonprofit organization in turn receives annual distributions from the interest earned. The organization or any of its donors may add to these funds at any time. 45 |

Gifts of Real Estate And other property can be donated to The Foundation, allowing a donor to establish a charitable gift annuity and/or receive maximum tax benefits.

All gifts are professionally managed and pooled for diversified investment and economies of scale and to increase their charitable impact. Investment performance is reviewed quarterly by financial experts and monitored by the Finance Committee and The Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

Thank you to Lee Zimmerman for eight years of dedicated service to The Summit Foundation and Summit County At the end of 2014, Lee Zimmerman was wrapping up his time as Executive Director of The Summit Foundation. During Lee’s tenure, grant and scholarship distributions doubled to more than $2.2 million annually. Donations also more than doubled, with a significant increase in the number of donor advised, scholarship, designated and agency endowment funds established with The Summit Foundation. Lee was instrumental in the development of special initiatives at The Foundation, including and Pre-Ccollegiate program with Summit School District and the CATCH after school program. Olaf Infante, a Pre-Collegiate student at Summit High School, mailed a note to The Foundation that shared: “Mr. Zimmerman is the best person ever for giving us (Pre-Collegiate students) a huge opportunity and keeping our dreams going.” Beyond The Foundation, Lee had been an active member of Summit County Rotary and an ever present force in our community, chairing many committees for nonprofit collaborative efforts.

Through the establishment of Donor Advised Funds, Scholarship Funds, Agency Endowment Funds, memorial gifts and general contributions, 185 donors gave $850,000 to The Summit Foundation’s Endowment Fund in 2014, a 22 percent increase over endowment fund gifts received in 2013. In addition, over $530,000 was received from the Estate of Norman L. Ringhand, bringing the total Endowment Fund contributions to $1.38 million in 2014.

“His commitment to our nonprofit partners and to our neighbors guided his very long days and he was known to be a keen thoughtful listener, a compassionate leader, and someone who offered a warm welcome to everyone he encounters,” Trustee Maureen Westerland shared. In celebration of his dedication to the Summit County community, Lee was honored with the “Spirit of the Summit” award at the 24th annual Summit County Philanthropy Awards in November 2014. A scholarship awarded to a Pre-Collegiate program graduate has also been created in Lee’s name. “Lee has been a true friend to the community and his leadership and kind demeanor will be truly missed,” Trustee Kevin McDonald added. 49 |
