2020 Downtown Boulder Employee Assistance Fund

In early March, there were nearly 10,000 employees working in Downtown Boulder. Now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of these workers are unexpectedly and heartbreakingly unemployed. For those living paycheck to paycheck when times are good, this situation puts them in dire financial and emotional distress. For the most precarious, this could mean evictions, utility shut-offs, missed payments, lack of food and other economic catastrophes. That's why the Downtown Boulder Foundation (DBF) has created the Downtown Boulder Employee Assistance Fund. Money donated will be used to provide gifts of $500 to those employees greatest need.

Please consider participating in the "Fun-d Run" Virtual 5K by encouraging friends to donate or by simply making a tax-deductible donation directly to the fund.

The Downtown Boulder Foundation, Inc. will consider all additional fundraising efforts to maximize the funding potential of the fund.  Please reach out to Cindy Sepucha with questions, ideas relating to fundraising and the Downtown Boulder Employee Assistance Fund.
