Ben Raderstorf was just 12 years old when he served on the Millennium Trust Advisory Committee. “My parents had made a donation to the Millennium Trust in my name,” he explained. “The committee is randomly drawn from donors every year – and in 2003, my name was selected.
This month, we’re celebrating a Millennium Trust milestone: through the Trust, The Community Foundation Serving Boulder County has granted $1M to a range of Boulder County nonprofits, including Via Mobility Services.
For Hy Harris, Principal at EKS&H, partnering with The Community Foundation Serving Boulder County is a smart investment. “Since EKS&H got involved with the foundation in 2008, I’ve always thought that there’s no penny wasted in support of all they do,” he said.
Lyons resident Phil Aumiller figured he’d gotten his money’s worth from his Volkswagen Jetta TDI. “It had 60,000 miles on it when I bought it, and I drove it for another 134,000,” he said. “I didn't want to try to sell it myself, which is always a painful, time-consuming process…and I didn't know if somebody would buy it for a couple hundred dollars or a couple thousand.”
Yesterday on 88.5 FM/1390 AM, Rich Lopez -- who serves on the board of The Community Foundation Serving Boulder County -- hosted "A Public Affair," a monthly collaboration between the Foundation and KGNU Radio.
