Bohemian Foundation Commits up to $750,000 to Match Individual Donations For Flood Relief In Larimer County
The Community Foundation has created three charitable funds to address the relief and recovery needs within Larimer County in response to the devastating floods that impacted our region. Gifts to the funds will support local nonprofit agencies and governmental entities in their work to meet the needs of those impacted in our community. These are the three funds:
- Flood Relief: Estes Park and its canyon communities (Drake and above)
- Flood Relief: Loveland and its canyon communities (below Drake), including Little Thompson River area damage
- Flood Relief: Poudre River communities
Bohemian Foundation will donate up to $250,000 to each of these three funds to match donations that are made by individuals by Oct. 31, 2013, for a possible total of $750,000. If $750,000 is raised by our community and those funds are matched by Bohemian Foundation, we are talking about 1.5 million dollars. The Community Foundation will not charge an administrative fee on donations made to these funds.
