BBB Foundation


The Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado Foundation is the bridge between the Bureau and the community and seeks to positively impact those it serves through resources and education.

The Foundation is focused on serving four specific areas of the local population: Military, Seniors, Future Entrepreneurs/Students, and Social Enterprise.

The Foundation was established in 1990 as a 501(c)3. Some of the educational programs it funds, along with other grantors, include:

  • Outreach and educational program for those 65 and older
  • An educational program for teenagers, the nation’s largest target of identity fraud
  • Free or low-cost educational seminars for businesses
  • Educational programs for military personnel
  • The Excellence in Customer Service (EICS) program based on the Malcolm Baldrige Award, which encourages the highest level of customer service as the way to succeed in business.

The programs of your BBB Foundation are made possible through grants and voluntary donations. To support these programs, your contribution can be made to the Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado Foundation, Inc., 25 North Wahsatch Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. Please note on your tax-deductible donation if you would like the money to be earmarked for a specific program.
