At Bisbee Vogue, Inc. (BVI), we’re grateful and proud to be part of an amazing, welcoming, and heart-strong community.
In 2014—our 24th year—we did the math and found that over that 24 years our events and partnered programs represented approximately $5 million in local economic development dollars, and over $500,000 in direct cash donations in and around Bisbee, Arizona.
From 2015-2020—our endowment campaign years—our all-volunteer board will direct a professional staff to establish programming that fulfills our mission and visions for our community in ways that were not imagined in 1990, our founding year.
Five years will quickly become 50 years as we envision our grandchildren and great grandchildren enjoying the 50th year of our signature event: Bisbee 1000 The Great Stair Climb.
Aside from fulfilling our mission with popular athletic events and supporting local causes, we are currently leading the development of the Cochise County Outdoor Recreation Center (ORC), which promises to be a hub of health and education, as well as a necessity to help grow and populate our community.
Your knowledge or direct participation over the years has made a significant impact for which we are deeply appreciative. Our task now is to involve you in our larger vision of the 50-year future.
BVI's giving totals vary from year to year, influenced by how much BVI receives in sponsorship and donations, as well as internal expenses. In the last few years, in addition to giving, we've been applying funds inward to help BVI grow in its mission. This includes expanding BVI's healthy initiatives in our community.
