Community Foundation Establishes Fund
The Community Foundation serving Boulder County has set up a donation fund to keep nonprofit services available to the community:
The COVID-19 Response Fund for Boulder County was set-up to provide essential services for community members who are most vulnerable to the virus and most likely to be negatively impacted by the response to the virus. At this critical time, investing in continuing access to care, food, hygiene, shelter, housing and other services for the most vulnerable is important to keeping the entire community healthy.
The COVID-19 Response Fund Boulder County will first focus our philanthropic efforts on ensuring that nonprofits providing such services are able to implement best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep their services flowing. Then, as necessary, response.
Grants from the fund will be directed by foundation staff to local nonprofit organizations working with the above described populations. Funding will support client services and/or operations of selected nonprofit groups. It is the foundation’s hope to begin making grants next week, based on research staff is currently conducting. No request for proposals will be distributed.
In addition to deploying funds from the COVID-19 Response Fund Boulder County, the foundation’s President’s Fund is being mobilized to support needs.
