The Community Foundation Serving Boulder County’s annual Culture of Giving drive is here, providing an opportunity for all of us to work together to improve lives in Boulder County. For this year’s drive, The Community Foundation is suggesting that community members donate one hour of their income (annual salary divided by 2,080 hours).

This singular donation will help hundreds of local nonprofits via The Community Trust, The Community Foundation’s unrestricted endowment that is dispersed year after year. Over the past 21 years, the trust has distributed more than 800 grants to local nonprofit organizations dedicated to the arts, environment, health and human services, education, and civic participation, all fueling community transformation.

Every donation makes a difference. Your gift will be leveraged with others to have the most impact in meeting Boulder County’s greatest needs now and forever. If you haven’t participated in the Culture of Giving movement in the past, I encourage you to do so. The Camera has been a proud partner of The Community Foundation in this campaign from the start; it has been very rewarding to see the growth in Boulder County’s philanthropic culture.
