Boulder, Colorado Charities That You Can Get Involved With

When choosing a nonprofit to support, you want to make sure that your money is going toward an organization that works for a cause you believe in. Fortunately for anyone living in Boulder County, we have a charitable organization for just about any philanthropic purpose you can think of, many of which are just a short distance from our own apartment complex.  If you’re on the hunt for an opportunity to do some good, we have a list of places to start. Here are a few ideas for Boulder charities that could use your support today:

There With Care

There With Care is a Boulder-based nonprofit that provides support services to children and families who are facing critical illness. They work in conjunction with hospital social workers to identify patients in need of financial, emotional, or practical relief. Through contributions made by area residents and local businesses, There With Care works to carry the critical ill through their medical crisis.

There are three ways that our community residents can get involved with There With Care, including donations, volunteering, and purchasing items from their wish list. If you’re interested, visit the website to learn more, or call administration at 303-447-2273.

The Inn Between

The Inn Between is a charitable organization located in Longmont, CO. Their mission is to support the development of the life skills that are necessary to make the permanent transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency, and ultimately, finding a rental home of their own.

If you’re interested in getting involved, you can choose to provide volunteer assistance for ongoing programs or individual fundraising events as they arise. Ongoing support is also needed for various facilities maintenance tasks, administrative work, and more. Sign up online or call them at 303.684.0810 to learn more.

Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence

Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence provides a range of support services to adults and youth who have been affected by domestic or dating violence. The organization offers violence prevention education, transitional services, group and individual counseling, and safe emergency shelter for those in crisis situations.

Volunteer opportunities are available in two forms: those positions that have direct contact with victims and those who only have indirect contact. Volunteer training is offered three times annually. Contact the volunteer coordinator at or by phone at 303.449.8623.

Please do not call the crisis hotline number to inquire about volunteer opportunities.

Center for Resource Conservation

If sustainable living is more in line with your personal interests, this nonprofit organization is for you. The Center for Resource Conservation’s mission is to address key conservation issues in our community by providing accessible and affordable solutions to residents in our area. They work to reduce the negative environmental impact of non-sustainable practices.

Opportunities to get involved currently include administrative assistance at the Spruce Street office, pulling nails from reclaimed lumber, maintenance, customer service, copywriting for the organization’s newsletter, and more. To learn more about how you can help, contact Jen Scroggins, HR Manager, at 303.999.3820 (ext 211) or send her an email at

Big Hearts, Big Soles

Because large shoes require twice the materials, they tend to also cost significantly more than smaller sizes. For those living in poverty, these rare (and often custom made) shoes are virtually impossible to find and afford. Big Heart, Big Soles is a nonprofit that aims to bridge this gap.

If you would like to offer your support to this very worthy cause, donations are always a great way to start. Make your donation via PayPal here. Otherwise, stop by Buffalo Wild Wings in Superior, Colorado on the first Wednesday of each month for an Eat Wings, Raise Funds event. During these events, 10% of your food bill is donated directly to the organization.

If you don’t see something that interests you here, visit the Boulder section of Great Nonprofits. You can also stop by our apartment leasing office and ask our helpful staff if they know of any local organizations that could use some help. We are very active in our community, and we would love to point you in the right direction.
