The Avalon Theatre Foundation's mission is "to preserve, promote, and enhance the Avalon Theatre for community benefit". The Avalon Theatre Foundation, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1991 by Pat Gormley. Its original mission was the historic restoration of the beautiful Romanesque Revival building. It successfully undertook a fundraising effort that provided for the restoration of the theater's original 1923 façade. The Foundation continues to center its mission on historic preservation, generational heritage, and the continued commercial operations of The Avalon Theatre located in downtown Grand Junction, which includes the over $9 million renovation in 2014. Today, it embodies an added sense of responsibility and vision aimed at propelling the facility into a true civic auditorium capable of accommodating a wider range of uses that support significantly improved commercial and cultural benefits to the community of Grand Junction, Colorado.
