Grants of up to $30,000 to Colorado nonprofit organizations and agencies for programs that strengthen and enhance local communities in eligible locations. Some applicants are required to contact Foundation staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to support operational expenses as well as programs and projects that support local youth, foster economic stability, and create vibrant communities. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Funded activities must serve residents within the Poudre School District boundary.

Bohemian Fund supports three areas:

  • Ensuring all youth thrive.
  • Promoting economic stability and mobility.
  • Cultivating a vibrant, engaged, connected and resilient community.

The fund also supports organizations that value diversity and inclusion, foster belonging and strive to advance equity. Applications need to be aligned with one of the fund’s three goals and demonstrate how their impact advances equitable outcomes.

For more information about each of the Bohemian Fund goals, see

Applicants may request support within one of three categories:

  • General operating support
  • Program support (programs typically operate each year; they are not one-time efforts)
  • Project support (projects are typically designed as one-time only)

For definitions of the key concepts of diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging, see:
