Schomp provides gift, sponsorship to Sturm campus

Gift of $250,000 from automotive group to be matched by Sturm Family Foundation, providing $500,000 to ACC location in Castle Rock


A $250,000 gift and sponsorship by Schomp Automotive Group to Arapahoe Community College's Sturm Collaboration Campus in Castle Rock will be matched by the Sturm Family Foundation, providing $500,000 for future program innovative initiatives at the campus and student scholarships.

The state-of-the-art boardroom at the campus will be named the Schomp Automotive Innovation Center. The investment supports the ACC Lift the Gift campaign, a $5.1 million match opportunity provided by the Sturm Family Foundation.

“Schomp believes education provides the basis for a strong community and thriving economy. We have a longstanding relationship with Arapahoe Community College and are proud we can contribute to the ACC Sturm Collaboration Campus where students will be well prepared for the future,” Schomp Vice President for Business Development Michael Dunlap said in a news release.

The ACC Sturm Collaboration Campus opened in August 2019 and welcomed more than 650 students and provides pathways in business, technology, health, and workforce training. The campus, which also houses staff from Colorado State University, Douglas County School District, the Arapahoe Douglas Workforce Center, and Innosphere Ventures, has been developing innovative partnerships and programs with community and industry partners.

“ACC has had a great working relationship with Schomp Automotive through the years, and this gift and sponsorship demonstrates Schomp Automotive' s commitment to this region and to our students,” Dr. Eric Dunker, ACC's associate vice president and dean of Business, Technology, and Workforce Partnerships, said in the news release.

Schomp Automotive and ACC will celebrate with a naming dedication event for the Schomp Automotive Innovation Center from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 12 at the Sturm Collaboration Campus. RSVP at
