COVID 19 - Bohemian Foundation

Addressing Community Needs


The safety, health and well-being of our communities are paramount for Bohemian Foundation.

We recognize that in the days, weeks and months ahead our community will be faced with challenges and needs we likely never imagined. In the short-term, the Foundation’s top priority is identifying gaps and providing assistance in areas such as food, housing and health. In the longer-term, the Foundation is looking at best ways to contribute to systems approaches that assist in these safety net areas.

The fund is maintained and deployed by Colorado Enterprise Fund.
