Human services nonprofit agencies may now apply for 2018 Worthy Cause pool funding

Deadline to apply is Sept. 14

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County’s 2018 Worthy Cause pool funding process is now accepting applications. Nonprofit human service agencies and housing authorities in Boulder County may apply for capital funds now through Sept. 14, 2017.

During the 2008 General Election, Boulder County voters approved an extension of the .05% Worthy Cause sales tax with 73% of the vote. The 10-year initiative allocates a portion of sales tax revenue to Boulder County nonprofit human service agencies for capital projects, including the purchase of land or buildings, construction, renovation, or debt reduction. To find out more about investments made through the Worthy Cause sales tax, view the Worthy Cause program report.

Revenues from the sales tax are awarded to eligible human services non-profits through a competitive funding process. The current Request for Funding process will make awards for funds generated in 2018.

Throughout the course of Worthy Cause III, sales tax revenues have been leveraged through fundraising and other grants to strengthen our community services in early childhood learning, family support services, basic needs services such as food, clothing, housing and shelter, domestic violence, and healthcare.
