Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum Foundation Board

The CSPM Foundation Board hosted their first meeting of 2024 this past month. During this meeting, we said a fond “farewell” to a wonderful, dedicated volunteer and welcomed new Foundation Board Members. The CSPM Foundation is comprised of passionate and committed community members that work alongside the CSPM staff and the CSPM Board to support the Museum and its envisioned future.

Thank you Dr. Darryl Thatcher!

Dr. Darryl Thatcher is passionate about preserving and sharing our region’s history. As a native of Colorado Springs, he loves recounting his personal connection to Colorado Springs and teaching the next generation our region’s history. His grandfather Edwin Giddings came to Colorado Springs soon after the city’s founding about 1868. During his tenure of the CSPM Foundation Board, he served as treasurer and played a key role in streamlining our financial processes. He also advocated for funding for internships and scholarships. Although he is terming off the Foundation Board, he will continue to be involved at the CSPM on the Fundraising Committee and Acquisitions Committee.

Welcome New CSPM Board Members

CJ Moore is passionate about supporting her community. When the CSPM was collecting materials on how the Waldo Canyon Fire impacted Colorado Springs, CJ shared her personal stories about the loss of her home. She even let museum staff visit the remains of her home to collect family china that was damaged by the fire. She has been a longstanding supporter and a member of the Clock Tower Society. She is excited for the opportunity to further her engagement and leadership. CJ has served on several nonprofit boards including the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center Foundation and the Pikes Peak Community College Board. Her expertise and community connections will be a significant asset as the Museum and CSPM Foundation Board move into the strategic planning process.
