What is SCFD?

The Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) is a voter-created special tax district that distributes revenue generated by a 1¢ on $10 retail sales and use tax to over 300 scientific and cultural organizations in the seven-county metro Denver area. The SCFD was adopted in 1988 by metropolitan voters and has been supporting culture in the metro Denver area ever since. The District consists of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas (excluding the cities of Castle Rock and Larkspur), and Jefferson Counties. The primary purpose of the SCFD is "to provide for the enlightenment and entertainment of the public through the production, presentation, exhibition, advancement or preservation of art, music, theatre, dance, zoology, botany, natural history, or cultural history."
