BOULDER — Community Foundation Boulder County has awarded $15,763 in Veterans Fund grants to four nonprofits serving local veterans, including Cultivate, the Qualified Listeners Corp., Veterans Community Project — Longmont and Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement (HOPE).
“Today the Community Foundation Boulder County joins in the collective salute to honor the men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces. We are proud to recognize the service of the nearly 14,000 Boulder County veterans. Their unique experiences, perspectives, and leadership are vital to the community in all aspects of community life,” Tatiana Hernandez, CEO of the Community Foundation, said in a prepared statement.
The Veterans Fund is a permanent endowment of the Community Foundation Boulder County, awarding grants to programs that support the strengths and needs of local veterans and their families.
Grantees are chosen by an advisory committee comprised of community members who are veterans, or who are family members of veterans; or who have direct experience providing veterans’ services.
