The Lowry Redevelopment Authority (LRA) was formed after the closure of Lowry Air Force Base in 1994 to lead the transformation of the old military base into a new mixed-use community. Four years later, The Lowry Foundation was born based on a Resolution of the LRA's Board of Directors. The Lowry Foundation was incorporated on April 30, 1998, and received its 501(c)3 status from the Internal Revenue Service in June 1998. The Articles of Incorporation state: "To assist the Lowry Economic Redevelopment Authority in fulfilling its purposes, including but not limited to raising revenue for the purpose of constructing public improvements, including parks, recreational and athletic facilities, within or for the benefit of the Lowry Community."
The early work of The Lowry Foundation was primarily purchasing and installing a collection of public artworks in Lowry parks that were funded through the LRA by one of the Denver Urban Renewal Authority's (DURA) "percent-for-art" programs.
In 2008, the Lowry Redevelopment Authority transferred the historic Eisenhower Chapel ownership to the Foundation. This Chapel is essential because it is on the National Register of Historic Places and was designated a landmark in 1981 by the Landmark Commission. Under the Foundation's management, the nondenominational Chapel has become Lowry's town hall.
The Foundation's Board of Directors is made of Lowry residents, business owners and community leaders who share a vested interest in the legacy and community of the Lowry neighborhood.
