The Board of Directors recently approved a fiscal sponsorship for the Ear Community. This effort is led by resident Melissa Tumblin. The mission is to promote education and public awareness about Microtia and Atresia and hearing loss, in an unbiased manner, while promoting advocacy and connecting individuals in the same situation. Eventually, this group will gain it's own non-profit status.
Frenzel Family Fund
Donor Advised Fund
Jessica Ridgeway Legacy Fund
Donor Advised Fund in memory of Jessica Ridgeway
Partners in Philanthropy Fund
This is the annual granting and operating fund for the Foundation. Since the beginning of the Foundation, grants from this fund have been given to over 100 non-profits that help people in Broomfield. For operating expenses, the Foundation Board and Staff work hard to keep operating costs at a minimum.
This is the Foundation's main endowment fund. It was started by a challenge from Jack TerHar, Jr. in 1999. He was joined by Wells Fargo, Vectra, Aerosuds and Shirron, Inc. in asking the community to meet a match in order to eventually raise $1,000,000. Once the fund reaches that original goal, the $1 million will remain the principal and any interest or additional money can be used to increase granting capacity. This fund is for the future of the Foundation-it will be able to continue the granting process, even in hard times.
Aspen Fund Donor Advised
This field of interest fund gives grants to non-profit groups that help the disabled. Monies have helped with special education learning materials and activities for adult disabled programs.
Broomfield Assistance Fund for Seniors
This field of interest fund was established by Senior Resources of Broomfield to take care of the needs of seniors (age 60 and over) living in the City and County of Broomfield, long into the future.
Disaster Relief Fund
This fund is only used in the case of a community disaster. Donations could be given to the Foundation and every penny would be used to help with expenses to improve the disaster situation. This fund was established when Maryel Manor had a fire many years ago.
F.R.I.E.N.D.S. of Broomfield
This designated fund gives grants to specifically help with programs and operating costs for this local non-profit.

Leonard Rudolph Fund
This is a field of interest fund that was established to benefit patients, survivors and caregivers of those with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease).
Sid and Joyce Levy Fund

Spallone Family Fund

Special Needs Fund
This fund helps those in need when there are no resources or resources have been exhausted. Referrals are taken from other non-profit agencies that help clients. Payment is always made to the service provider, never to the individual. Examples include rent and utility assistance, dental and eye care needs, programs for foster care children when the parents cannot afford to pay, and prescription assistance.
Youth Advisory Fund
The Foundation's Youth Advisory Committee makes recommendations to the Foundation Board of Directors for program assistance that benefit youth in Broomfield. Examples have included Broomstock, Broomfield Summer Youth Players, assistance with a dental screening program at Emerald School and other school related programs.
