Accomplishing More Together


As we reflect on such a challenging (and really long!) year, gratitude is at the top of our minds.  While we are mindful that we have lost far too many people, seen others fall ill and there are serious economic losses across the county, our community has stepped up and leaned in. You have answered the call to help your neighbors and for that we are grateful.  It is our privilege to be your trusted philanthropic partner. 

It has been a year of change and one of re-evaluation. At the Community Foundation, we started the year in search of a new leader not knowing that person would take on the role in the midst of a pandemic. Six months into the transition, we can share that despite the challenges of this year, our foundation is strong.  


Sometimes, the name says it all: Margaret’s Hope Fund not only brought hope and meaning to its namesake, the late Margaret Jonikas, while she was alive; the Donor-Advised Fund established at the Community Foundation continues to inspire hope in her memory today.

Experts say inequality isn’t just rearing its head in hospitals, but in many aspects of pandemic life. Locally, AMISTAD – a grantee of Community Foundation Boulder County that promotes education, health, and quality of life for our Latino community – is stepping up.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Foundation is supporting numerous local nonprofits, including the Wild Plum Center and the YMCA of Northern Colorado. We’re pleased to share their inspiring, solutions-driven community responses to address the impact of the pandemic on childcare.
