CORPORATE/FOUNDATION DONORS ($5k+): Please message us, we have a 501(c)3 setup and can provide direct donation information. 

The communities of Superior, Louisville, and Marshall in Boulder County suffered the State of Colorado's most devastating fires in history on December 30th, 2021.
Nearly 1,000 families lost their homes and all of their personal possessions.

We are raising money to provide direct assistance to families in need who have lost their home. Many of these families were uninsured or under-insured and need financial support to get back on their feet. The names of those families are listed below as well as many of their pictures. All of the proceeds are being donated to these impacted families. 

We have a professional who is trained in researching and verifying authenticity of claimants who is helping to ensure legitimacy of all people receiving funds. See below for more info.

Giving can have a profound impact to help impacted people get back on their feet. Our objective is to get financial assistance and much needed items in the hands of those who have lost everything.

How Funds Will Be Directed
Contributed funds will be donated directly to families in need. Once impacted families have applied, are verified and meet qualifications, we will begin providing allocations among all of those families based on the number of people living in their household.

Flow of funds: Funds are withdrawn to our 501(c)3 partner account (Colorado Nonprofit Development Center, or CNDC) who handles compliance, tax and regulatory issues for our Marshall Fire Family Relief Fund. We then distribute the funds directly to affected people from that account. All of the money will be provided to qualified families in need.

All recipients have been professionally verified for identities and legitimacy of claims. Scroll down for pictures of some of these families. We have over 700 families (70% of the affected households) being verified and applications being processed. The following is an initial list of some of the families we are trying to help:
