Visit Colorado Springs Transparency - Visit Colorado Springs


Helping people better understand the programs and funding of Visit Colorado Springs.


Visit Colorado Springs is a private, non-profit 501(c)(6) trade organization that provides information and inspiration to people thinking of traveling to the Pikes Peak region. Our funding is provided by both public and private sources. We are committed to complete transparency in how we are funded, how we allocate these funds, how we operate and the results that we achieve. Tourism promotion is a tool that helps our local community by putting people to work and making this a great place to live - it's likely that someone in your family or one of your neighbors directly benefits from the tourism industry. And the entire community benefits indirectly. Tourism promotion is an investment in our community and our people. The work of Visit Colorado Springs puts people to work and provides economic opportunity. Tourism promotion is funded largely by those who visit and not the people that live here. We thank the community and our local, state and nationally elected officials for their ongoing support as we provide this important public service.
