Focus Areas

Animal Care & Welfare
The Community Trust – Animal Care & Welfare category is designed to fund the most pressing needs and concerns related to animal care & welfare in Boulder County, and to promote an equity lens in this work. As in past years, all organizations and entities working in this sector are invited to apply for funding. However, this year priority will be given to the following:
Organizations that ensure income is not a barrier to accessing their programs and services, or support animals whose people have been impacted by hardships. This could include, but is not limited to, providing access to shelter, low-cost veterinary care, spay/neuter services, training resources, humane education, food, and other animal care supplies.
Applicants that actively promote equitable access to services, programs, or volunteering for people from historically underrepresented communities.
Applicants that have concrete plans to be better prepared for future wildfire and disasters.
Arts & Culture
The Community Trust – Arts & Culture category recognizes the importance of arts and culture in shaping their collective cultural narrative. Arts and culture have the power to make meaning, heal, and amplify often ignored or unheard voices, accelerate positive change, imagine a better future, and to give us hope in times of hardship and dynamic change.
As in past years, all organizations and entities working in this sector are invited to apply for funding. However, this year priority will be given to the following:
Arts organizations led by people from historically underrepresented communities.
Applicants that propose efforts to build partnerships outside of the arts to elevate and amplify voices of historically underrepresented people, make meaning of this moment, heal, and/or to add power to social change and systems change efforts.
Organizations and projects that work to expand access to arts & culture for historically underrepresented people of all ages.
Education
The Community Trust – Education category recognizes the pursuit of strong education outcomes for all students in Boulder County has for decades been met with mixed results as achievement gaps persist. As reported in TRENDS, recent evidence of progress includes systems-level changes, state efforts to fund full-day kindergarten, increased graduation rates and intentional efforts at local colleges to ensure that historically underrepresented students thrive. Financial and social impacts of COVID-19 and the March mass shooting in South Boulder threaten such progress.
As in past years, all organizations and entities working in this sector are invited to apply for funding. However, this year priority will be given to the following:
Organizations whose leadership reflects the population served, or demonstrates they work directly with the population served to design and implement projects and programs.
Organizations that address bias in education systems or are working to ensure that historically underrepresented students succeed.
Ensuring access to high-quality early care and learning for children from historically underrepresented and under-resourced families.
Environment
The Community Trust – Environment category recognizes that their community is an environmental leader on Open Space and an innovator on mass transit incentives and bike paths. Yet, challenges persist, and some problems are getting worse as the county joins the state in dealing with population growth and a rapidly changing climate.
As in past years, all organizations and entities working in this sector are invited to apply for funding. However, this year priority will be given to the following:
Organizations that ensure income and inequities are not barriers to accessing programs that conserve energy or prevent negative impacts of natural disasters, climate change, or local environmental degradation.
Applicants that actively promote equitable access to services, programs, or volunteering for people from historically underrepresented communities.
Efforts that improve soil health, the local ecosystem, or support pollinators.
