People often ask, “What does BCA do?” Other than the obvious reduction of Russian Olive in and around Boulder, many of our undertakings since 2006 remain unseen. The reason: BCA exists primarily to support and facilitate the community interests of its residents.

Some of that assistance comes by way of BCA’s role as a fiscal agent. As a fully-registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit, BCA can apply for grants on behalf of other entities. For example, many of the grants to the Boulder Arts Council over the past several years are actually administered through BCA as the fiscal agent. Likewise, individuals who want to donate to specific activities, such as the Library or the recycling effort, can direct charitable, deductible contributions to those activities via checks written to Boulder Community Alliance.


Our local community oriented projects can be summed up in three words: Educate, Communicate, Facilitate.

We are strong supporters of our local school, Boulder Elementary. Serving only grades K-6, this little school provides the perfect opportunity for close interaction among kids, residents, and the local environment.

BCA has helped give wings to several community-oriented projects over the past several years. The really successful ones result from individuals who have great ideas and who are willing to step up to lead the effort. Examples of these are:

We regard Boulder Community Alliance as just that–an alliance. An alliance made up of community-oriented individuals who are committed to cultivating a vibrant, sustainable community. What projects or activities would you like to see added to this list? How can we help you attain your vision? The ideas, the energy, the commitment come from individuals. Where BCA’s mission and an individual’s vision intersect–that’s the makings for a beautiful, successful endeavor that will benefit the community for years to come.
