The MCF exists to connect people, enhance lives, and preserve the culture of Minturn.

Our History

The Minturn Community Fund began as grass-roots as it gets. In 1996, the town's all-volunteer fire department needed additional funds, so local folks took it upon themselves to make it happen. From there, the idea of a community fund was hatched and there's been no looking back!  The MCF has tackled everything from fire department funding to improving public spaces, community gardens to concert series, yoga in the park to neighbors in need. And all of it was accomplished because of community-minded people like YOU!

The Minturn Community Fund exists to connect people, enrich lives and preserve the culture of Minturn.
