Community service is the bread and butter for Boulder County nonprofits. For the Community Foundation Boulder County, or CFBC, showing support for nonprofits is part of its mission which is shown through an annual grant, The Community Trust.
The Community Trust provides Boulder County nonprofits with an opportunity to apply for funding which can be applied to specific needs of the organization, according to the CFBC website.
The Community Trust, CFBC’s annual grantmaking fund, is distributed among local non-profit organizations committed to education, civic engagement, health and human services, arts and culture, the environment, animal care and welfare. Since its inception in 2001, the Community Trust has awarded more than $6 million to support the needs of Boulder County.
The grants are divided into two cycles with the first funding animal care and welfare, arts and culture, education and environmental topics. The second looks at civic engagement and health and human services projects and organizations.
In October, CFBC announced the 110 recipients of the 2021 Community Trust grant cycle which totaled over $370,000. According to a CFBC press release, this brings the foundation’s total giving in 2021 to over $8.5 million.
Several Longmont nonprofits are among the recipients of this year’s award cycle. Those include: Boulder County Farmers Markets, Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement, or HOPE, Intercambio Uniting Communities, Longmont Community Justice Partnership, Longmont Meals on Wheels, The Inn Between of Longmont, Inc., TLC Learning Center, Wild Plum Center, Sustainable Resilient Longmont among several others.
