for Giving, 2nd edition (2003)
Catalog for Giving, 2nd edition, provides
information about "many small, little-known
nonprofits located in Boulder County with creative
approaches to addressing the issues that face
our community's disadvantaged children and young
adults. The Catalog for Giving of Boulder
County was developed to bring public attention
to these organizations that provide services to
youth, but which have a difficult time finding
financial support and other necessary resources.
... The Catalog for Giving gives you the opportunity
to support these local grassroots organizations."
Catalog for Giving, 1st edition (2001)
for Giving, 1st Edition "gives you a
glimpse of some of the remarkable work non-profits
in Boulder County are doing to change the lives
of disadvantaged children. It also gives you the
opportunity to support these local grassroots
organizations. ... The Community Foundation Serving
Boulder County and the Brett Family Foundation
partnered to create this Catalog to give these
non-profits the recognition they deserve."

Internships: In the past The Community Foundation
has partnered with the University of Colorado and
the Center for Entrepreneurship to place MBA students
in nonprofits over the summer.
Cone Funds (through 2004)
Pine Cone Funds were established
as an option for families who would have liked to
create a legacy for themselves but were not in a
position to set aside the $10,000 minimum required
to establish a fund at one time.
The donors contributed $1000 a year to a personal
account, which The Community Foundation invested
for them. The Foundation reinvested all interest,
dividends and other earnings, and waived its fee
until the fund reached the donor advised minimum
level, so the "Pine Cones" would grow
Once the fund reached $10,000, the donors began
to direct the interest earnings into the community,
to fund the issues and groups they cared about.
The Community Foundation
and the Eldora Mountain Resort co-sponsored a fundraiser
for The Catalog for Giving, 1st edition.
Giving 10 (1999-2002)
Giving 10 began as a pilot program in 1999, to promote
philanthropy in Boulder County youth. It brought
together a group of high school students to distribute
$10,000 in grants. The teens discussed community
needs, agreed on focus areas, considered proposals,
conducted site visits, and made wise recommendations
on allocating the funds. The focus of their funding
was teen homelessness. Teens Giving 10 made its
first grants to Attention Homes, The Inn Between
in Longmont, and People's Clinic.
