WHAT IS OUR MISSION?

The Boulder County Bar Foundation was organized as a 501(c)(3) organization to raise donations from members of the Boulder County Bar Association, invest the donations in an endowment fund that will grow in principal and distribute proceeds from the endowment fund to legally-related 501(c)(3) organizations in Boulder County, Colorado.


WHO DO WE HELP?

The Foundation supports a variety of legally-related organizations and projects in Boulder County through annual grants from its endowment fund. The Foundation made grants totaling $20,500 during 2017 to the following recipients:
