Bellco Credit Union Supports Free Kids at Denver Art Museum
The credit union receives honors from the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts
Bellco Credit Union's commitment to support the arts throughout Colorado communities it serves earned the organization a 2018 Colorado Business Committee for the Arts honor.
CBCA's business for the arts awards are presented to exemplary organizations that have gone above and beyond to support the arts and creative industries.
Since 1936, Bellco has donated to nonprofits, supported worthwhile causes and sponsored community events, striving to make a difference.
"We believe that the arts contributes greatly to the strength of the communities we are in," says Doug Ferraro, president and CEO, Bellco Credit Union.
The credit union, which surpasses $4 billion in assets last year, sponsors the Denver Art Museum's Free for Kids program, resulting in a 51 percent spike in youth visits year-over-year.
The Denver Art Museum is internationally known for the way it helps visitors – including kids – explore and interact with art. Beginning in 2016, Bellco became the presenting sponsor of the DAM's "Free for Kids" program to ensure that kids can experience the transformative power of art, by enabling the museum to cap youth pricing for all special tickets exhibitions at $5 and support a transportation fund for school bus trips.
"Bellco's very proud of our partnership with the Denver Art Museum, specifically it's free for kids," Ferraro says. "That means kids can come to the Art Museum no matter what their walk of life is, they get to come free."
