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.
We checked in with a handful of the most recent grantees of the foundation’s Community Trust, and we’re inspired. Read on for updates from Intercambio Uniting Communities, 350 Colorado, Celebrate the Beat, and the Colorado Pet Pantry.
The Community Trust is the permanent grantmaking fund of your Community Foundation Boulder County, addressing broad needs, countywide. The Community Trust grantmaking process runs in two cycles, and the next deadline is July 17, 2020.
