Construction Projects & Schedule

What could the Vail Interfaith Chapel possibly do that would warrant a $10 million budget?

Two commercial buildings with over 50,000 people in and out 365 days per year with minimal maintenance over 51 years, and no updates since 1999, warrants a lot of big-ticket renovation items.  Typical of a nonprofit religious organization, the Vail Religious Foundation operates on a shoestring budget and entered 2020 with $500,000 in its reserves.  It has since put $280,000 of its own reserves into getting this project underway, and now needs your help to see it through completion.

 

Construction Projects                            $7.0 million maximum

Reserve Fund / Endowment                         $2.4 million needed to last 25 years

Campaign Costs                                $800,000 over 3 years

 

Funds raised as of February 23, 2021:   $2,450,000

WHY?

The Vail Interfaith Chapel is the spiritual heart of Vail.  Without it, guests and residents cannot worship any of the six faiths that gather here. It is also the community center for the Town of Vail – a cultural and historical icon use by over 50,000 people annually. After 50+ years of constant use,  improvements are needed to improve the building’s structural and aesthetic integrity.

– 34,000 residents and guests attend religious services annually

– 100 families served with emergency shelter in winter storms in past 5 years

– 4,200 fans at 16 Bravo! Vail concerts and discussions each year

– 10,608 people annually attend 14 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week

– $15 million minimum annual revenue driven to wedding-related businesses through the Vail Valley

The Vail Interfaith Chapel and Ministry Building are used for non-religious purposes approximately 60% of the time.
