ABOUT DAVE AND MARY WOOD:

Dave & Mary Wood

Dave Wood and his wife Mary lived for many years in their home community of Ouray. They established a donor-advised fund during their

lifetime, and then made a significant estate gift to that fund, now managed under the auspices of the Western Colorado Community Foundation. Their three children now serve as donor advisors. The Woods loved music, especially opera. They were founders of the Ouray County Performing Arts Guild and staunch supporters of the Music in Ouray chamber music series. Dave was a historian at heart, assisting in the restoration of the Wright Opera House and renovating the bank buildings in Ouray and Silverton to their original design. By putting aside funds today to care for organizations that need support in the future, the Woods are doing their part to preserve Ouray as the unique mountain community that it is and to support a number of organizations in western Colorado.

OCPAG is grateful for the Woods’ enduring legacy in our community, and for the generous underwriting from the Dave and Mary Wood Fund and Western Colorado Community Foundation that has made this series possible.
