Community Foundation Serving Boulder County

So procrastination has the firm grip on me. I volunteer for the Community Foundation Serving Boulder County, and picked up my disk of grant requests late due to the four-mile fire.

Then, I didn’t look carefully at my calendar and notice this morning that my work for my committee is due today. Okay, this is not volunteering at its best.

I spent the day working on client-based tasks, and communicating with prospects and clients, and didn’t do my Community Foundation homework.

Do you donate time or money to a local charity or benevolent organization? I’d like to hear about it, and I’d like to share it here because I know many people who (thanks Joel, I almost said “that”) are looking for ways to contribute to helping our community. The Boulder Community Foundation is just one organization which needs your help.

Call, text, or email me today! … I’d seriously enjoy having the opportunity to talk to you about your plans if you’re moving, or if you know someone who is considering a move, and needs some straight answers. I’d also like to help you get involved in volunteering, if you need assistance finding the right connections for that.
