About our Benefactor...

The Keep Pueblo Beautiful Association is an organization dedicated to the ideals of a beautiful citizen, Ingrid Ahlberg, who passed away on March 20, 1972.

Those who knew her as a teacher, remember how she made Greek history and art come alive and seem real even in the days of the Great Depression. Those who knew her through community activities remember how she gave of herself after her retirement to many endeavors, from voluntarily teaching handicapped children to community betterment. Those who knew her as a founder of the Pueblo Beautiful Association remember her tireless effort and devotion to the goal of making Pueblo a better city in which to live. She painted alleys, stayed downtown all day in the hot sun to monitor calls.


Keep Pueblo Beautiful has three endowment funds. Two of the endowment funds were created by many past members working tirelessly week after week running bingo games for a very long time. The third endowment is from GOCO for use in maintaining conservation easements protecting over 4,197 acres of open space. Our membership is committed to using only the interest generated by the endowment funds, with the exception of if the need should arise to defend the conservation easements. Any other funds needed for projects must be raised by the membership or through donations from generous supporters.
