Last update: 4/5/2018

 

In the fall of 2017, more than 1,000 Coloradoans collectively donated $1,103,548 to support U.S. communities and territories impacted by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. This amount includes a dollar-for-dollar match by Bohemian Foundation that was issued to encourage residents throughout the state to generously support those in need.

The Community Foundation is a well-established, highly respected steward of donations and is committed to deploying a thoughtful, responsible, and timely due diligence effort to distribute these donor gifts. We are not charging an administrative fee on these donations, so the entire amount contributed – less the low third-party credit card processing fee of 2% for any gifts made online – will reach those who need help.
