Columbine Memorial Foundation
The Columbine Memorial Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization, was formed in March 2009 after the Columbine Memorial Committee completed construction of the Memorial and disbanded. The Columbine Memorial Foundation’s purpose is to augment and facilitate maintenance, repairs and improvements to the Columbine Memorial. The Foundation also coordinates volunteer efforts throughout the year to perform trash removal, weeding, plant maintenance and general cleaning of the Memorial.
The cost to maintain, repair and provide improvements for the Columbine Memorial are estimated at $10,000 to $15,000 per year. Donations are currently being accepted for this purpose. 100% of funds received go towards maintenance and improvements at the Memorial.
Within our local community, and we believe across the nation, it is an appropriate goal to ensure that the innocent victims of Columbine are “Never Forgotten”. This Memorial serves not only to honor those innocent victims but also to provide a permanent historic record of this tragedy, and to deliver a message of hope and education for many generations to come.
The Memorial is an open, public place for all to visit and reflect on the impact and lessons learned from this tragedy. The Memorial location in Clement Park provides a stunning, but peaceful outdoor setting for visiting and personal/family reflection. As one of the victim’s parents put it “Upon leaving this Memorial, a parent’s first reaction will hopefully be to hug their child, and tell them they love them.”
The Columbine Memorial is an opportunity to provide something positive in response to the Columbine tragedy. It will unite, not divide, our community and nation.
