About the Foundation

Our Mission

Post 1 Foundation’s mission is to build, support, and preserve Veterans’ service programs while bringing together Veterans, families and the community in the public square of Veteranship.

Our Role 

The Post 1 Foundation was created to lead the capital campaign for VFW Post 1’s Veteran Community Center renovation and programs such as the Veterans Arts Council, health/wellness and more.  As the capital campaign matures, the Post 1 Foundation continues to embrace VFW Post 1 as a strategic partner while expanding its mission to build, support and preserve Veterans service programs throughout the Colorado Front Range Veteran community.

The Foundation is grateful for the support of Veterans, advisors, business leaders, corporate and foundation partners. Without the support of the community, our efforts would not be possible.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Post 1 Foundation is dedicated to providing an inclusive and harassment-free experience in all of our programs and offerings for all participants, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion.

Furthermore, the Post 1 Foundation recognizes it’s not enough to declare that our organization is inclusive, non-racist/non-discriminatory – we put these words into action to build and sustain an equitable and inclusive culture where diversity is celebrated and valued. This ongoing practice is reflective in the following areas:

  • Board membership and volunteer staff: we seek a diversity of voices, backgrounds and experiences representative of the veterans we serve

  • Community partnerships: we create authentic and mutually beneficial relationships and collaborations with a variety of organizations, groups and businesses

  • Programming and events: we support equal access for people of all abilities, backgrounds and experiences to participate in our programs and events, and are uncompromising in our commitment to provide an inclusive and equitable environment for all.
