Wow! That is big bucks. At least $1,442,930.42 to be exact.
We can learn more about the SCIENTIFIC and CULTRIAL FUNDING DISTRICT or to some up what that tier thing is see below:
Funding Tiers
Currently, the SCFD recipients are organized into three tiers:

By statute, Tier I is composed of the five major regional institutions: the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Botanic Gardens, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Denver Zoo, and The Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Tier I institutions have solid reputations for regional and national excellence. In addition to drawing attendees from the seven-county metro-area and greater Colorado, Tier I organizations generate considerable out-of-state tourism. Tier I organizations receive 65.5% of the SCFD funds.

Tier II represents one of the fastest growing SCFD segments. Tier II organizations include 26 regional organizations offering the best in science and culture. By statute, Tier II organizations qualify for funding based equally on two factors: 1) qualifying annual income, and 2) the organization's paid attendance. Tier II organizations receive 21% of SCFD funds.

Tier III recipients include an astonishing array of small organizations with cultural and scientific missions. From small theater groups, choirs and orchestras to nature and science offerings to art centers and community groups, Tier III organizations benefit our neighborhoods and provide outlets for the most personal cultural interests. Many provide opportunities for members of the community to be involved as performers and educators. Tier III organizations receive 13.5% of the SCFD funds

SCFD is accountable to the taxpaying citizens of the district and maintaining public trust is fundamental. The SCFD Board of Directors and County Cultural Councils play important roles in ensuring the public's money is spent carefully and wisely.
