The Governor’s Residence Preservation Fund was founded in 2008 to lead the continued preservation and stewardship of Colorado's Home. Our goal is to preserve the Governor’s Residence at the Boettcher Mansion as a splendid showcase of the state’s cultural and civic heritage and as a place for the people of Colorado to visit and enjoy.
Today state citizens and visitors from around the nation and world are welcomed through the doors of Colorado’s Home to enjoy public tours and various education, civic learning, and cultural programs. Through generous public and private support, the Preservation Fund is working to ensure that this outstanding home continues to represent and celebrate the diverse peoples, places, and cultures of Colorado.
The mission of the Governor's Residence Preservation Fund is to preserve the historic Governor's Residence at the Boettcher Mansion and bring it into full use and enjoyment for Colorado residents. Education programs, historic tours, public programs and special events are statewide, inclusive and non-partisan.
Why do we need the Governor’s Residence Preservation Fund? While the Residence is state-owned and state tax dollars cover basic health and safety repairs at the Residence, there is no state budget for the long-term preservation, protection, and restoration of Colorado's Home. Nor is funding provided for public programming or the curation of the home's collection with its many treasures.
History Colorado Docents
For well over fifty years, History Colorado Docents have served the Governor’s Residence. These dedicated volunteers organize and give public tours, serve on planning committees, teach education programs, inventory the mansion’s collections, raise money, and serve as the Residence’s Ambassadors. As administrations come and go, the History Colorado Docents give Colorado’s Home an unwavering supply of stability and love.
Board of Directors
The GRPF is under the oversight of a non-partisan Board of Directors made up of committed community members from around the state.
