With the LGBT population in Denver and Colorado rapidly expanding, and the need for advocacy,
community, health and other services also growing, the Center needed to expand its space,
resources and programming.
The Center purchased a property in the historic Capitol Hill district for renovation. The building
would more than double current space as well as separate the offices from programs. Additionally the central location, a rooftop patio, and convertible space for programs would invite more people to visit, utilize and benefit from the facility. RDM Communications’ strategic recommendations and oversight led to a historic $3.5 million campaign for capital, operations and endowment.
The Center completed building its new home in July 2010 having met the halfway mark of its
fundraising goal 6 months ahead of schedule. By the following year, the $3,000,000 mark had been reached by its targeted time with the remaining $500,000 to be strategically raised through a series of grassroots, matching and corporate strategies as a part of The Center’s 35th anniversary celebration.
