                Boulder  Seniors Foundation


The Boulder Seniors Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization that works to enhance the quality of life for Boulder’s older population by supporting the city of Boulder Senior Services and the Boulder Senior Centers.   The Foundation sponsors programs, invites citizens to contribute time, talent and funds for special projects and encourages financial support through individual gifts and bequests.

Functions and Activities

The Foundation accepts and administers funds from tax deductible donations, financial grants, bequests, memorials and gifts.  Foundations board members are unpaid volunteers, and, excepting  a very small amount for office expenses, all funds go to support services and activities for seniors in Boulder.

While the City of Boulder provides basic facilities and services for Boulder seniors, there are many areas where public funds are not available to provide extra amenities at the Senior Centers or specific assistance to individuals who cannot qualify for help from existing agencies.

The Foundation does not work directly with clients, but provides support to individuals who are referred through Boulder Senior Services.  City of Boulder Resource Specialists refer clients’ needs to the Foundation, which then provides one-time financial assistance to seniors 60 and up and their families for personal needs that cannot be met through other means.  For example, the Foundation can pay a medical, utility or repair bill for a client in a dire situation. 

The Foundation also gives financial support to seniors and encourage seniors to attend educational programs for seniors on topics such as Estate Planning, Elder Law and Identity Theft.
