Colorado’s Hurricane Recovery Fund
is making a difference

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.

To the right is a list of the initial grants distributed once the matching challenge concluded. The bulk of the funding will be distributed in the first quarter of 2018, and the list will be updated to reflect those grants. If you have any questions regarding the Colorado Hurricane Recovery fund, please contact our Donor Services team.

Colorado's Hurricane Recovery Fund is already helping nonprofit organizations in the affected areas address intermediate and long-term recovery needs. The list will be updated to reflect the ongoing grant distribution.
