The Boulder Community Alliance was alerted on Saturday, January 1, 2022 that our non-profit had been mistakenly listed as the recipient of a Boulder, CO fund to support those impacted by the current wildfire situation. We wanted to alert donors that contributed to this fund that the Boulder Community Alliance is currently working on solutions with The Community Foundation of Boulder County Colorado, and the fundraising host, as well as Network for Good who will be distributing the funds. We will communicate updates as we reach a solution and do appreciate your patience while we iron out this mistake. While our organization is a small one, we are committed to seeing that these funds are distributed to the correct party.

The organizer of the original fundraiser has facilitated the path to a solution, apologized profusely for the error, and coordinated all involved parties. We are well on our way to a resolution!
Fortunately, our organization has not received any funds yet. A third-party organization called Network for Good actually manages the transactions for these types of fundraisers. This organization has not yet collated and delivered the funds from the Instagram/Facebook Fundraiser. Network for Good will be able to redirect the funds directly to the intended non-profit. While this mistake has confused a lot of donors, it is easily rectified with a little bit of paperwork. Our kudos go out to the organizer for a well-intentioned effort and we are working closely with all groups to ensure donor intent is honored.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people of Boulder, Colorado. We encourage donors to visit https://www.coloradogives.org/bouldercountywildfirefund?step=step1 to donate to the wildfire fund set up by the Community Foundation Boulder County.
