|Legacy Fund||The Legacy Fund is the Foundation's main endowment fund. It was started by a challenge from Jack TerHar, Jr. in 1999. He was joined by Wells Fargo, Vectra, Aerosuds and Shirron, Inc. in asking the community to meet a match in order to eventually raise $1,000,000. That goal was achieved in 2013 and beginning in 2014, we have been able to use 4% of the earnings annually to give additional grants.|

|Collaborative Emergency Sheltering Fund||The Collaborative Emergency Sheltering Fund Help provides immediate, short-term, emergency hotel vouchers for our vulnerable neighbors. These include victims of domestic violence or other crimes, and residents displaced by severe weather or other emergencies, but during our statewide “stay-at-home” order in response to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, we will temporarily allocate 100% of donations to this fund to those who are staying in a vehicle, on the street or doubled or tripled up with other families due to hardship, as they otherwise have nowhere to ‘stay-at-home’ or shelter in place. Partners of this fund include Broomfield FISH, Broomfield VOAD, the City & County of Broomfield, local faith communities and members of the community at large. 100% of funds raised directly cover these costs.|
|Disaster Relief Fund- Covid 19 Response & Recovery||This fund is designed to complement the work of our public health officials, the Broomfield VOAD and expand local capacity to address the outbreak as effectively as possible. Donations to this fund will help rapidly deploy resources of basic needs to Broomfield residents through the recipient nonprofit organizations who are providing front line services. This vital funding will help us address urgent needs such as food and supplies in this initial response phase.
*Since no administrative fee is charged to this fund, please opt to cover BCF direct processing costs if paying by credit card. This will ensure that your entire donation amount may be used for disaster relief and the Broomfield Community Foundation will not incur additional fees for funding our local nonprofits. Checks may be made out to Broomfield Community Foundation, with Disaster Relief in the memo and mailed to P.O. Box 2040 Broomfield, CO 80038. Check donations will NOT be assessed a processing fee.
