As a community, we’re still assessing the magnitude of the threat we face from COVID-19. But waiting to respond is not an option.

Community Foundation Boulder County has been a longtime leader in improving the lives of our most vulnerable populations. Now we can play our part by donating to the Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund, to ensure essential services for community members who find themselves at the intersection of being most vulnerable to the virus and most impacted by inequity.

At this critical time, investing in continuing access to care, food, hygiene, shelter, housing and other services for the most vulnerable is important to keeping the entire community healthy.

Grants from the fund will be directed to local nonprofit organizations who are working with these at-risk populations. Funding will support client services or operations of these selected nonprofit groups. In addition to deploying funds from the COVID-19 Response Fund Boulder County, the foundation’s President’s Fund is being mobilized to support needs.

A generous $100,000 match has been announced to double the impact of your giving. Please go to commfound.org to donate. Thank you, Camera readers, for supporting this important effort.
