How You Can Help
With your support, this vision can become a reality by 2013. Each year thousands of visitors will be able to view the history and hear the stories of the Mountain Post.
There are several ways you can help us build the Mountain Post Historical Center. Whatever method you choose, you can be sure that your contribution will be used to help preserve the traditions, the memories, and proudly honor the soldiers who have served at Fort Carson.
Help us build the museum to:
- Honor our soldiers. The Mountain Post Historical Center will honor and salute the men and women of Fort Carson who made significant contributions to the freedoms we enjoy today. So many stories of valor and courage are waiting to be told and remembered.
- Preserve our history. Thousands of fascinating artifacts will be on display to promote a greater appreciation of contributions made by the Soldiers of Fort Carson. The museum will chronicle Fort Carson’s history, honor current Soldiers and the legacy of the Soldiers who came before.
- Educate. Themed galleries, interactive displays, oral testimonies and rare and unique artifacts will be displayed to showcase the history and sacrifices made by Fort Carson Soldiers. Visitors will learn the important role The Mountain Post played in protecting our country and preserving freedom. It will help school children better understand their country and new soldiers understand the bravery and sacrifice of others. More than 100,000 visitors are expected to visit the museum annually.
- Say “thanks.” The museum will show Soldiers and veterans our deepest appreciation for the personal sacrifices they and their families have made to protect us. It is a long overdue tribute.
- Provide a dramatic landmark. The Center can serve as a gathering place for community and veterans groups, as well as a space for reunions of Fort Carson veterans.
- Economic benefits. Job creation and increased tourism dollars as just two of the significant economic benefits identified in an economic impact study of the project.
Donations/Capital Campaign-Sponsorship Opportunities
There are several sponsorship opportunities available for you to get involved.
Tribute and Memorial Gifts
Show others how much you care. Making a donation to the Mountain Post Historical Center in honor or in memory of someone is a wonderful way to show you care. When you make a memorial gift, not only do you remember and celebrate someone’s life, but we will also send an acknowledgment to the family to make sure they know you are thinking of them, too.
Mountain Post Historical Center - Kit Carson Society
The Mountain Post Historical Center is pleased to announce the creation of a special new donor society to recognize the patriotism, the vision and the generosity of our most committed supporters who contribute $1,000 in program support to the Mountain Post Historical Center---Kit Carson Society. Named after legendary cowboy and Fort Carson icon, Kit Carson, the Society recognizes those visionary, founding donors who provide program support in 2009-2013.
NOTE: Corporate matching gifts
Some corporations match employee gifts dollar-for dollar, and sometimes by as much as two or three dollars for every dollar given. Be sure to check with your employer to see if they have a matching gift program and then let them know you have made a gift to the MPHC so they can match your gift.
The Mountain Post Historical Center Association leads the community in building a museum for Fort Carson and the community. It will take the help of the entire community to make the Mountain Post Historical Center a reality. Whether through contributing financially towards the Capital Campaign or by giving your time and talents, you support will be greatly appreciated.
