The Summit Foundation is a non-profit organization originally established in 1984 by the Breckenridge Ski Corporation, and dedicated to improving the quality of life for residents and guests of Summit County and Neighboring Communities.
The 20th Annual Philanthropy Awards was an evening of
celebration as friends, colleagues, community, and family members
gathered at the Keystone Conference Center to honor this year’s recipients. The event, sponsored by Wells Fargo and The Summit Foundation, recognizes and honors individuals, organizations, and businesses for their time and money contributed to the community through varying entities.
