" Telluride and the Arts are in our blood.  Our hope is that we own this home forever.  Each one of our children learned to ride their bikes on the little hill in town park.  This community means so much to our family.  When we are in Telluride, we are happy.  When we aren’t there, we dream about being there.  To be a part of Telluride Arts is a perfect opportunity to match my passion for the Arts and my passion for Telluride.  I may never in my life have an opportunity like this again.  I really mean that.  Most importantly, I believe in the Telluride Arts Center (Warehouse) project.  I know it is money well spent.  I know it is going to elevate the Arts in Telluride to a level that has never been achieved before, although the level of arts support in Telluride is already amazing.  Transfer Warehouse is going to change how the world feels about Telluride, and it is going to bring a level of art to Telluride that could never be achieved without the incredible calling card of Transfer.

join the 2018 Founders Circle with A $250,000 contribution

We’re on the final stretch to meet our end of year goal, and invite you to join a small group of influential donors who share our passion and want to help finalize the purchase by the end of the year. This will allow us to own the property outright, and will tee up the second phase of our fundraising next summer for new construction.

The Founders Circle is a small group of people who will be honored with permanent, prominent recognition inside of the Transfer Warehouse entry as the founding donors who had the vision and commitment to preserve and protect the Warehouse for the Telluride community.

  • Here are the details:

    • Limited Time Offer--donations made this fiscal year, or January 2019

    • Name, dedication, or sentiment of your choice in a prominent area at the interior entry of the building artfully designed by our architect team.
