On an annual basis, Boulder County invites volunteers from county government programs to submit proposals requesting up to $500 per proposal. Proposals may seek to fund an innovative new idea, or can be used to enhance an existing volunteer program. Based on predetermined guidelines, a selection committee chooses the proposals to fund.

Volunteers will be individually recognized during the ceremony and the funding will go directly to the programs in which they participate.

For more information about the event, contact Deb Olszonowicz, Community Engagement Manager with Boulder County Community & Volunteer Initiatives, at volunteerinfo@bouldercounty.org or 303-441-4889.
