The Foothills Foundation is a non-profit organization whose members are business and community leaders who give of their time and talents to make a difference in the community – we also like to have fun! The mission of the Foothills Foundation is to build a stronger South Jefferson County community by supporting local cultural, educational and recreational programs and activities while creating opportunities for community partnerships and volunteerism. The Foothills Foundation produces two community events – the annual golf tournament and the Summerset Festival. Each helps to support the endeavors and mission of the organization.

2018-2019 Completed Events
In 2019, we had 140 players join us for the 31st Annual Foothills Foundation Golf Tournament – helping to raise nearly $10,000 to help with course improvements. With nearly 50,000 people attending Red, White & You, hopefully you had a chance to come by the Breckenridge Brewery beer gardens hosted by the Foothills Foundation.
In 2018, we hosted the 30th Annual Foothills Foundation Golf Tournament, Breckenridge Brewery beer gardens at Red White & You and the 34th Annual Summerset Festival. 2018 funds raised were focused on helping to fund the new Inclusive Playground at Clement Park, with the Grand Opening hosted on August 8th.
