Safety Foundation

In order to give back to our local communities and support safety initiatives, E-470 launched the Transportation  Safety Foundation on June 1, 2001. Today, the E-470 Transportation Safety Foundation operates exclusively to promote charitable giving, public safety, transportation safety, driver education, and other educational purposes throughout Colorado.

Grant Program

Each year, the E-470 Transportation Safety Foundation awards up to eight $2,500 grants to nonprofit organizations and tax-exempt government entities along the E-470 corridor and throughout the state of Colorado. Additionally, this program provides $200 donations to local High School After Prom events.

High School After Prom
In an effort to provide a safe and fun activity for students to attend on prom night each year, the Transportation Safety Foundation grants $200 to selected high schools in the area to help fund their after prom events.

In 2019, 23 local high schools received grants. This year, due to the unfortunate cancellations of prom events at high schools across the state, the foundation was able to fund seven after prom events. 

This year's high school recipients are:

​Rock Canyon High School
​Heritage High School
​Standley Lake High School
Conifer High School
​Frederick High School
​Greeley West High School
​Caliche High School

The 2019 golf tournament was held at the Pradera Golf Course in Parker, Colorado and raised ample funds to support our foundation and local safety initiatives.
