The Scientific & Cultural Facilities District is a voter-approved special district in the seven-county metro area that provides a stable source of supplemental funding to more than 300 scientific and cultural organizations inside the district's boundaries. The SCFD collects a one-tenth of 1 percent sales-and-use tax (or one penny on every $10 spent), providing approximately $40 million each year to area cultural attractions both small and large. 


El Scientific & Cultural Facilities District es un distrito especial aprobado por el electorado, que abarca siete condados de la zona metropolitana de Denver. SCFD es una fuente estable de fondos suplementarios para más de 300 organizaciones científicas y culturales dentro de los límites del distrito. Mediante la recaudación de un décimo del 1 por ciento de los impuestos a las ventas/usos (un centavo por cada $10), SCFD les proporciona alrededor de $40 millones anuales a las atracciones culturales de la zona, tanto grandes como pequeñas.
