EVERGREEN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
William Hill | Music Director
Evergreen Chamber Orchestra is extremely fortunate to benefit from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District – or SCFD – of Jefferson County, CO.
We are grateful for the financial support that this organization provides to not only ECO but many nonprofit organizations within the Denver Metro Area.
Here’s a bit of information about the SCFD from their website:
“Since 1989, Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) has distributed funds from a 1/10 of 1% sales and use tax to cultural facilities throughout the seven-county Denver, Colorado metropolitan area (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson counties). The funds support cultural facilities whose primary purpose is for enlightening and entertaining the public through the production, presentation, exhibition, advancement or preservation of visual arts, performing arts, cultural history, natural history, or natural sciences.
The distribution budget for scientific and cultural organizations in the seven-county area is approximately $50 million annually. And we’ve discovered that funding on that scale, delivered to a local area, makes a profound impact. As a result, the Denver Metro area is now in the national spotlight and has been elevated in stature to a world-class cultural center.”
