BUILDING SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES
The Foundation for Sustainable Urban Communities was founded in 1990 by beloved Denver oilman/philanthropist Sam Gary. (The original name, Stapleton Foundation, was dropped in 2018.) Its mission was to write the redevelopment plan for Stapleton, the city’s former airport which closed in 1995 to make way for Denver International Airport. At 4,700 acres, it is the largest infill development in the country.
Strengthening Schools and Learning Opportunities in our Communities.
The goal for The Foundation's lifelong learning initiative is to make our neighborhoods a model of lifelong learning where infants to seniors will find innovative educational opportunities to satisfy their personal, professional and recreational needs and desires.
