SMPS Colorado proudly introduces our charitable giving program, SMPS Colorado Believes. Harnessing the power of our SMPS community, this program is rooted in the SMPS vision, “Business Transformed Through Marketing Leadership” and our Chapter’s core values of learning, commitment, and community. 

Learn more about how we're making a commitment to give back to our members and our community below through two scholarship opportunities, a relief fund, and charitable giving to the SMPS Foundation and local charities in our community.  











 SMPS Colorado believes in providing educational opportunities for our members, which is why we are providing a scholarship for three members to the attend SMPS Southwest Regional Conference (SWRC) from April 12th-14th, hosted in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This scholarship is to be used for registration only, a $525 value. Applications for the SWRC Scholarship must be submitted through this online form no later than February 22nd, 2023. 

This scholarship provides our members with ongoing professional development opportunities that advance their careers. This scholarship is to be used for registration at any of the premier educational programs offered by SMPS Southwest Regional Conference (SWRC) or SMPS Amplify National Conference. More information about the scholarship and the application documents can be accessed below.

Applications for the Professional Development Scholarship must be received by [email protected] no later than Sept. 1st. Once awarded, the scholarship funds must be used within the current SMPS Colorado term (September 1st through August 31st).

SMPS Colorado understands that not all members and businesses can afford our memberships and programming. As a way of giving back, a Relief Fund has been created to provide those opportunities at a reduced price for small business in need of financial assistance.

Applications for the Membership and Small Business Relief Fund must be submitted to [email protected]. Members of the SMPS Colorado chapter whose membership has recently expired or is soon to expire (within 45 days) are eligible to apply. Small businesses must submit a copy of their Small Business certification. 

SMPS Colorado offers up to eight complimentary student memberships during the current SMPS Colorado term (September 1st through August 31st) to local college students for SMPS Colorado student membership dues and SMPS Colorado program registrations. By building awareness around the A/E/C marketing profession and connecting our student members with our SMPS Colorado community, we create opportunities for students as they enter the job market and search for a career or internship placement. 

 Applications for the Student Membership Scholarship must be received by [email protected] and may be used on one (1) SMPS Student Membership and registration fees for any educational program(s) offered by SMPS Colorado for up to 12 months from receipt.  

SMPS Colorado provides an annual donation to the SMPS Foundation. The Foundation delivers research and marketing intelligence to inspire success and improve bottom-line results and is free to all members. Click here to discover various research, books, industry publications, educational events, and more!
