Due to the overwhelming support of our community, we have surpassed our initial goal of $100,000 and have increased the goal to $200,000! This will allow us to continue to provide funding on a rolling monthly basis well into the recovery phase.
The Broomfield Community Foundation is committed to responding quickly and throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that many of our residents want to help and many are in dire need of support. Working alongside the Broomfield VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster), which is responsible for activation of volunteers, the Disaster Relief Fund- COVID-19 Response & Recovery provides one place for philanthropists, community leaders, corporations and individuals to contribute.
One hundred percent of every donation to this community fund will support organizations that are ensuring people can access basic needs during this crisis. The Broomfield Community Foundation will continue to deploy the resources to these nonprofit organizations and local agencies who apply for funding on a rolling monthly basis, and our next distribution will take place as soon as we reach the $15,000 monthly minimum balance.
Please share broadly so we can continue to support our front-line nonprofit organizations during this unprecedented time.
Collaborative Emergency Sheltering Fund
You may have seen or read about the City and County of Broomfield’s appeal to support the Disaster Relief Fund, but also more recently, the Collaborative Emergency Sheltering Fund during this unprecedented time.
We urgently need your help to assist an often overlooked group of Broomfield residents, one that is particularly vulnerable during the best of times, and is now especially so due to the COVID-19 pandemic — our neighbors who are unhoused.
Please help us provide a safe “stay-at-home” option for these residents by contributing to our Collaborative Emergency Sheltering Fund. Until our current, statewide “stay-at-home” order is rescinded, 100% of the donations to this fund will be directed toward reduced-rate vouchers at local hotels/ motels for unhoused residents with strong ties to Broomfield.
Help us reach our goal of $50,000!
