Boulder Community Health Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund

This morning as I sat in the COVID-19 briefing at Boulder Community Health, I was reminded of a powerful insight delivered by Coretta Scott King — "The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." Quoting Martin Luther King Jr., she said all one needs to serve is “a heart of grace and a soul generated by love.”

I have never been more grateful to live in a community where it is abundantly clear that we have no lack of grace and no shortage of love. It’s clear we all have a role to play during this unprecedented time in our community.

As you can imagine, efforts at BCH are focused on preparing our organization to respond quickly to the presence of COVID-19 and the expected increase in patients. The BCH Foundation has been considering how we mobilize our community to support our frontline providers during this rapidly changing situation.

Two priorities have been identified for our immediate focus:

  1. Support our most critical asset at BCH, our people.
    You can help us assist those BCH staff who are facing unanticipated financial challenges (e.g., needing child care due to the closing of schools, financial hardship from a spouse/partner being out of work, etc.). We will provide the assistance they need by significantly expanding the depth and breadth of support provided by the BCH Employee Assistance Fund.

  2. Remove any barriers to providing the best treatment for COVID–19.
    You can help by supporting BCH’s significant investment in our testing capability, expanding telehealth access, and planning for an increase in cases, including supply management, space capacity and flex training for our staff and physicians.

BCH leadership is confident in the ability and personal commitment of our clinical team to provide the best treatment and care to the community in the coming weeks.  We need your help to support those caregivers. Please consider donating to our COVID-19 response fund.

I would like to donate to support BCH's COVID-19 Response Fund


Matching made possible through the generosity of Brad Feld & Amy Batchelor, Dan and Cindy Caruso and anonymous local family foundations.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at or 303-415-5201 if you have any questions. In the meantime, thank you for your thoughtful consideration of making a donation or pledge at this time.

With deep respect and gratitude,
