Since 1996 the Community Foundation has been committed to supporting the safety and dignity of the LGBTQ+ community. Thanks to incredible leadership of people including Josie Heath, Margaret Katz, Jo Arnold, and Bob Morehouse – the Open Door Fund built a movement to support LGBTQ+ members of our county.
Nearly $2 million dollars has been raised from over 3,300 gifts to the Open Door Fund. The Community Foundation has awarded nearly $1 million to organizations in our community that uplift, offer community, and further the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. Our commitment to the LBGTQ+ community has been unwavering.
In recent years, we have watched in horror as the rights, humanity, and lives of LGBTQ+ people continue to be attacked. We have seen how important safe spaces, like Out Boulder County are to people seeking friendship, love, acceptance.
Which is why, and on behalf of thousands of donors, we are proud to announce the single largest grant from the Open Door Fund - $100,000 to support Out Boulder County’s “We All Belong Here” capital campaign.
Thank you to each and every one of our community partners who have been so committed to this work and instrumental in enhancing the lives of LGBTQ+ persons in Boulder County.
