The Open Door Fund

The Open Door Fund, a permanent endowment of The Community Foundation, supports the Boulder County community by raising money and distributing grants for programs that enhance the lives of its gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

Since our founding in 1996, we have made grants totaling more than $400,000 to agencies and programs serving the LGBT community in Boulder County, and have built an endowment of more than $500,000 to save for future needs. We are the largest funder of LGBT needs in Boulder County, Colorado.

You Can Make A Difference!

The Open Door Fund is guided by an advisory committee consisting of approximately 20 community members. We are actively seeking new members to be brought onto the committee in September. Read about the committee here, and download an application to join the committee here.

We need you! Please join us in supporting our community by donating to Open Door and by coming to the Annual Dinner, our largest and most exciting fundraiser of the year.

Every dollar you give will be invested right here in Boulder County. See the programs and services that Open Door has funded in the past and help us do more for the future.

2010 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Boulder County Survey Report

This Survey of LGBT people who work or live in Boulder County included roughly a 300-person sampling and explored demographic data (including age, education, race, and self identification), and especially perceived community needs. Many needs were identified in the survey, but the most common were: social opportunities, networking, and connectedness with other LGBT people; greater awareness and visibility of LGBT organizations; counseling and therapy; health; and youth and elder services.
