SMPS Colorado Believes in supporting the local charities that make a powerful impact in our community. By holding events with charitable tie-ins, we create opportunities for our members to get directly involved in bettering the lives of others.

In 2020, SMPS Colorado had unprecedented attendance at our series of virtual webinars and events in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic throughout the months of April and May. We're committed to make a donation with the proceeds from those events and plan to support the ACE Mentor Program Scholarship Fund in their effort to educate high school students about pursuing careers in the A/E/C industry.
