Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council
The Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council (TASHCO) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to promote and orchestrate cultural, historical and scientific activities in the City of Thornton. The TASHCO Board of Directors is appointed by the Thornton City Council. Council may appoint up to twelve members to the Board to serve a four year term. City Arts and Culture staff provide administrative support to the TASHCO Board of Directors.
Each year TASHCO submits an annual grant request to the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) through the Adams County Cultural Council. These grant funds are used for various types of programming within the City.
The goals of TASHCO are to establish dynamic partnerships and sponsorships; make TASHCO a part of the City’s Infrastructure to identify Thornton as a strong arts community; support, celebrate, encourage, recognize and present a variety of inspiring programs; and develop sound, consistent, and reliable funding sources.
The vision of TASHCO is to capture the hearts and minds of Thornton citizens and enhance the quality of their lives through exposure and involvement in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities.
