Incorporated in 1962 in CO - Temple Hoyne Buell was born in 1895. Mr. Buell earned recognition nationally as an architectural visionary, particularly for the conceptualization of the first "central-mall" shopping center designed with the parking lots encircling the shops. The foundation was established to support his charitable interests, which included the education of architects, research into catastrophic illnesses, and programs throughout Colorado to prepare young people to live healthy lives and contribute responsibly to the community. Mr. Buell died in 1990 at the age of 94. In 1995, the trustees of the foundation changed its emphasis to programs and initiatives for children, especially in the areas of early intervention, prevention, and improving the social and educational systems critical to the well-being of Colorado’s youngest citizens
