The year beginning July 1, 2020 and ending June 30, 2021 is one that most of us will long remember. In the wake of great challenges came notable generosity; it was like no other. We’re in awe of the preliminary numbers that show the largest gift year in Foundation history, up from $17.85M in FY20 to $29.8M*. Noteworthy gifts include the donation of a $13 million charitable remainder trust marking the Foundation’s largest gift in history, along with developing a philanthropic partnership between the Foundation and Northeastern Junior College.
We granted $7.9M* to nonprofits during this time of truly exceptional need, which included disaster recovery efforts, along with our traditional grants to nonprofits and college scholarships.
We celebrate dollars raised for our friends and neighbors in need, from helping over 4,000 people donate to support wildfire relief in Grand, Boulder, and Larimer counties to funding food insecurity and childcare options during COVID, to establishing partnerships for watershed mitigation work.
The Foundation will close the fiscal year with over $185M* in assets under management – more than a $50M increase over last year! Thank you for the trust you’ve placed in your Community Foundation to invest donor dollars wisely to benefit Northern Colorado and beyond.
