At his State of the City address in 2012. Mayor Hancock announced a $1 million lead gift from a local business woman to start the Rose Andom Center. Rose’s story is truly inspiring! From a childhood marred by domestic violence, to working nights to earn a college degree (the first in her family), to overcoming her own husband’s abuse, Rose displayed great determination and became a successful business woman, owning all three McDonald’s franchises at the Denver International Airport. She is a past Vice Chair of the National Black McDonald’s Operators Association, employed hundreds of people in our city, and is a champion of our new Center.
The site for the Rose Andom Center is 1330 Fox Street in downtown Denver. A major renovation of the building is required to create a warm, welcoming space for clients of the Rose Andom Center. The total cost of the renovation, including furnishings and exterior improvements is $8.8 million, for a total project value of $12.3 million for the Capital Campaign. Rose Andom donated our lead gift of $1 million, and has recently contributed an additional $500,000 to use as a match to double every additional dollar donated! Compassionate individuals, business leaders and philanthropic organizations recognize the importance to Denver of this exciting and vital project and have joined together to support the Rose Andom Center renovation. Be part of this exciting campaign!
We have currently raised 89% of our Capital Campaign goal and we need your help to raise the final dollars. Check back here to see our progress!
To help ensure the sustainability of the Rose Andom Center, we have a goal for a $4 million endowment fund to help provide ongoing maintenance and program support.
