Imagine! Foundation

Since 2000, the Imagine! Foundation has supported Imagine! through fundraising and education to ensure that Imagine! creates a world of opportunity for all abilities. 

To date, the Foundation has raised more than $8 million, providing extensive support for more than 3,800 people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (and their families), in Boulder and Broomfield Counties. A private nonprofit, the Imagine! Foundation has provided funding for Imagine! programs including residential sites and services, summer day camp and after-school programs, early intervention therapies, mental and behavioral health supports, adult day programs and job support, and emergency funds.

Education is a crucial part of helping the community to better understand the role people with intellectual/developmental disabilities play in society, what their needs are, the challenges faced by their families, and the support Imagine! provides.

We extend heartfelt thanks to all those who support Imagine! and the Imagine! Foundation with cash and in-kind contributions.

Leadership

Imagine! Foundation Board Members believe in the potential of all. These board members are leaders in the local community who volunteer their time and talents to ensure people with intellectual disabilities can be healthy, contributing members of our community.

Patti Micklin is the Imagine! Foundation’s Executive Director, where her professional and personal life converges. She has three decades of fundraising experience, and moved her family to Colorado from New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, so her daughter could access services through Imagine!.
