Community Catalyst


Today, Community Foundation Boulder County announced the release of the first round of 14 grants totaling $120K from our COVID-19 Response Fund Boulder County. These grants are being given to frontline organizations serving county residents who are most at risk of the virus, and living in poverty or belonging to an historically underserved population.

A summary of regularly updated news, announcements, resources, and other community information to help address and minimize the impact of COVID-19 across Boulder County.

Brad Feld and Amy Batchelor announced last night that they are putting up a $100K match for the COVID-19 Response Fund Boulder County.

Brad has been using his blog, Feld Thoughts, to encourage others to make the most out of being home - whether it be working, taking spring break, or celebrating St. Patrick's Day. When your Community Foundation Boulder County announced the COVID-19 Response Fund Boulder County, Brad and Amy took their leadership a step further and were among the first to donate. 

We, at your Community Foundation, have been impressed by the generosity of this community. People are picking up groceries for neighbors, being nice to one another in long lines, inquiring about volunteer opportunities, and taking prevention efforts seriously. Let's all keep taking care of one another, and follow Brad and Amy's example.

Some 14 local nonprofits and government agencies are participating in this community mobilization effort, to date. Among the participants, CU Boulder is working to engage students, faculty, and staff to take the Census 2020 survey online now.
