Pulliam Community Building Foundation

Welcome

 

A community effort is underway to revive and renovate the historic Pulliam Community Building at 545 North Cleveland in Loveland, Colorado.

 

The Pulliam Community Building Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3, is at the focal point of the Restore Pulliam project. We are working in partnership with the City of Loveland.

 

It is vital that we preserve, reuse, and care for this solid asset in the core of our community. With everyone's help, we can see life return to the auditorium of the Pulliam Community Building.

 

Constructed in 1938 for use as a community center, the auditorium of the Pulliam Community Building now sits empty-- twiddling her thumbs and under-utilized in downtown Loveland. We need to awaken this sleeping beauty. The rest of the building is used, but well below its potential.

 

By re-purposing and remodeling the auditorium, a broad spectrum of events can be hosted. The spacious auditorium is a grand structure. The resulting benefit will be more visitors to businesses located in the heart of Loveland.

Project Goals

 

IMMEDIATE LOCAL BENEFIT

A restored Pulliam brings thousands of additional visitors to Downtown and generates new economic activity.

 

WISE INVESTMENT

A creative solution to the current budget drain that includes a public-philanthropic partnership for both renovation and operation.

 

PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC INTEGRITY

This idea protects Loveland’s heritage by restoring a gem of local history and creates a functional, marketable venue out of an existing asset.

 

IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES

Restoration converts a limited use space to a variable use space that is unique, affordable and intended to serve groups and events of all sizes. Seeing is believing.

Matching Grant for City

 

Our foundation has offered a $100,000 matching grant to Loveland for remodeling of the auditorium. This gesture has been well received and hopefully will be the start of bigger things to come.
