Since 1989, Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) has distributed
funds from a 1/10 of 1% sales and use tax to cultural facilities throughout
the seven-county Denver metropolitan area. The funds support cultural facilities
whose primary purpose is to enlighten and entertain the public through
the production, presentation, exhibition, advancement and preservation
of art, music, theatre, dance, zoology, botany, natural history and cultural
Distributions through three Tiers
Distributions are made through a three-tiered system. SCFD annually distributes
approximately $40 million to over 300 organizations. In 2005, cultural facilities
funded by SCFD contributed $387 million in new dollars to the local economy,
a 10:1 return on
investment at the time. Click here to learn more.
Making it accessible
SCFD believes in making culture accessible. Each year there are more than
1.7 million opportunities through on-site or outreach activities for
school children to experience learning enhanced through programs provided
by organizations like the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Denver Zoo, Imagination
Makers, or the Scientific and Cultural Collaborative. Each year,
Art Museum, Botanic Gardens, Museum of Nature and Science, Denver Zoo, and the
Denver Center for the Performing Arts provide free
access to the public. Click here to see the Free Day dates.
An eleven member board of directors governs SCFD; directors represent
each county in the district and four directors are appointed by the governor.
The district employs four people – the District Administrator, Deputy
District Administrator, Tier III Coordinator and Office Administrator.
Over 65 volunteer County Cultural Council members appointed by the commissioners
or city councils of the seven counties contribute time to review Tier III
grant applications and make allocations. Click here for more information.
