Downtown Colorado, Inc

DCI provides key urban planning and economic development resources to communities who otherwise wouldn't have them. About 70% of all our member communities have under 20,000 people, with over 40% of all our local government members having less than 5,000 people in their towns. Without DCI's support, these small towns wouldn't have access to many of the benefits and resources that are enjoyed by larger towns and cities. Donating to DCI allows people to live comfortably in the places of their choosing, and provides opportunities that would otherwise not be there for these smaller towns throughout Colorado.
