Thank you—we can’t say it enough! Because of your generosity, people impacted by the highly destructive wildfires in Boulder County, Colorado, were able to receive support from local organizations that they know and trust. 

The Colorado Wildfire Relief Fund, in partnership with GlobalGiving’s crisis response partnership with Meta, powered grants to community-led nonprofits at the forefront of responding to this recent disaster in Colorado. 

Here is a snapshot of the work your donation has supported:

  • Community Food Share, a local member of the national Feeding America network serving Boulder and Broomfield Counties, supported fire survivors through local food distributions, information and monitoring share-outs, and volunteer mobilization.
  • Sister Carmen Community Center, based in Boulder County since 1978, has distributed more than $400,000 in gift cards to impacted families, 15,000 pounds of food, and provided more than 80 families with hotel or rental assistance. It is also providing one-on-one counseling and mental health support to community members through its trauma-informed advocates and specialists.
  • Can’d Aid provided canned water and other in-kind emergency supplies to survivors of the wildfires.

This fund is no longer accepting donations, and this will be the last fund report of this kind from our team. Thank you for advancing community-led disaster recovery.

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
