Win a pair of tickets to the Sterling Community Fund Gala

Staff report

The Logan County Commissioners are supporting this year’s Sterling Community Fund Gala, “A Stroll in the Park,” with a bronze sponsorship contribution which includes 10 event tickets. The commissioners will be selecting five winners to each receive a pair of tickets as a way to show appreciation to the people and the projects that make Logan County a great community.

The Sterling Community Fund (SCF) is an endowment, created by local residents as a long-term funding source, to support projects that make Logan County a more attractive place to live, raise a family, establish a business, and retire. Projects may include amenities that play a key role in attracting people and industry to the area. Examples include a community center, children’s splash park, expanded hiking/ biking trails, green space, and public displays of art.

“The Sterling Community Fund has the potential to take us to new heights as far as the look and feel of our community and its unique small town qualities,” said Commissioner Jane Bauder. “Combined with the hustle and bustle of new businesses and fun things to do in our county, the possibility of SCF projects would definitely be an asset to all of Logan County.”

Funding such projects are not possible without charitable support. Distributions from the fund may also be used as matching funds to encourage private donations to specific projects or leveraged as matching funds for external grants received by the city or county.

The SCF Committee’s initial goal is to raise $2 – $3 million, which will produce more than $100,000 each year for local projects. Over time, the fund will have a greater impact as it grows through donations and investment returns.

The Sterling Community Fund is part of the Eastern Colorado Community Fund portfolio, which is a grouping of all funds designat-
