OUR FOCUS IS SIMPLE:

Catalyze a spirit of philanthropy in others

Our philosophy

Giving forward to give back

At Bloom Foundation, we believe in the power of action-oriented philanthropy to inspire a thriving community. Throughout Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region, we champion organizations with big ideas and new perspectives who just need the right support to truly bloom.

Key areas of giving

Action-oriented philanthropy is strategic, which is why we focus on three areas of giving that have an exponential impact on the health of our community. With community impact as our compass, we support projects and organizations in the arts, conservation, education and other catalytic areas.

Arts

The Loo family is full of artists, musicians, actors and creatives. So at Bloom Foundation, we understand the importance of investing in the arts to engage community and inspire a vibrant Colorado Springs.

Conservation

We believe conservation goes hand and hand with community impact — because a thriving community demands a thriving environment. The Loo family actively stewards conservation efforts across the Pikes Peak region.

Education

Education is the catalyst for curiosity and community engagement — which makes universal education paramount to a city's success. The Loo Family believes all children deserve access to the same resources.

Our team

Our leadership team takes a hands-on approach to selecting and supporting our grantees’ big ideas from seed to full bloom. Get to know our family and Bloom Foundation staff.

“Growing up in families who were always involved in their communities, it  just seemed logical and easy to start volunteering and then leading projects that would better our community. I love Colorado Springs and am excited to see what the future holds as we grow into a new chapter.
