SCFD Grants in Broomfield

SCFD is the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, a tax collected and distributed to nearly 300 cultural organizations in our seven-county Denver metro region. Culture creates vibrancy for us individually and collectively. Through our diverse, local culture, we come together, we come to new ideas, we come to our senses. Beginning with taxpayers and with the expert shepherding of the SCFD, our collective mission is simple: We fund culture. In Broomfield, SCFD applications and funding is allocated by the Broomfield Cultural Council.
