When a donor establishes a donor advised fund, he or she may recommend where grants from those funds are directed.
We provide donors with a wide range of philanthropic tools, resources and pathways to fulfill their goals, create meaningful impact or leave the legacy they’ve always imagined. To learn more, please click the links below.

Broomfield Humanitarian Fund
The Humanitarian Fund is designed to provide financial resources to those individuals and families displaced from their country of origin due to military conflict, natural disaster, persecution, or other qualified reasons, who have settled in Broomfield. Due to significant global conflicts, natural disasters, and extreme unrest, there has been an increase in the displacement of individuals from their home of origin to Broomfield. These families have connections to Broomfield residents either as family members or they served alongside our military members who live in Broomfield and need to be close to their family, co-sponsors, and/or cultural mentors.
Collaborative Emergency Sheltering Fund
The Collaborative Emergency Sheltering Fund Help provides immediate, short-term, emergency hotel vouchers for our vulnerable neighbors. These include victims of domestic violence or other crimes, and residents displaced by severe weather or other emergencies, but during our statewide “stay-at-home” order in response to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we temporarily allocated 100% of donations to this fund to those who are staying in a vehicle, on the street or doubled or tripled up with other families due to hardship, as they otherwise have nowhere to ‘stay-at-home’ or shelter in place.
