The Independence Pass Foundation (IPF) is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3)] foundation based in Aspen, Colorado. Working with local, state and federal agencies, IPF develops and implements projects that maintain and enhance the ecology and beauty of the Pass and improve the recreational opportunities that are available to people of all ages. The Foundation is led by an 11-member volunteer Board of Directors and staffed by three part-time consultants—an executive director, development director and bookkeeper. Since its founding in 1989, IPF's many donors, volunteers and contractors have continued to support us with their time, their expertise and their dollars. IPF is truly the beneficiary of the community's caring for Independence Pass. We are honored to represent all who love the Pass in our everyday work.

A copy of our federal tax return form 990 is available for public inspection at www.guidestar.org.
