The Lowry Foundation was established in 1998 as a nonprofit organization with a mission of enhancing the quality of life and public spaces within Lowry. The Foundation provides a vital level of support to the vision of Lowry’s past, present and future as a community of pride and livability. It plays a key role in preserving and maintaining public spaces and historic structures, alongside the creation and support of community events.

History

The Lowry Foundation identifies ways to treasure and teach the richness of the community’s heroes and history – the people and preservation of Lowry’s past. The historic Eisenhower Chapel is the community’s Town Hall located in the Lowry town center. The Foundation owns and maintains this beautiful and important structure.

In addition, the Foundation has developed a free smart phone App that highlights Lowry’s historic buildings (as well as local businesses, parks and events).

We are also working with volunteers at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum on a website to preserve and share the history of the Lowry Air Force base.

Community Programs

The Lowry Foundation enriches and enhances the quality of life through programs of artistic, cultural, educational, and civic value. These include Artists in August (a celebration of our artistic community), our Speaker Series, the Uncorked wine tasting events, the Annual Lowry Beer Garden Celebration, our community grants program and our support for the Food for Kids Backpack program.

Public Art

The Lowry Foundation protects and preserves public and transit art to enrich the community and add a strong sense of place. The Foundation owns and maintains thirteen pieces of public art located throughout the Lowry neighborhood as well the beautiful Reading Garden.
