COVID-19 Response Fund Boulder County

We know you share our concern about the impact of COVID-19 in our community. 

 
Your Community Foundation has established the COVID-19 Response Fund Boulder County, to ensure essential services for community members who find themselves at the intersection of being most vulnerable to the virus and most impacted by inequity. The foundation's promise is to be a catalyst and to fight inequity by creating systems where all people can thrive. 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.
