Nonprofit Spotlight: 2022 Holiday Giving Opportunities

This is the season of giving and Boulder County nonprofits need the support of our community to help make the holidays memorable for the clients, families, and youth they serve. If you are looking for ways to give back this holiday season, Social Venture Partners Boulder County has collected a list of local giving opportunities ranging from donation drives, giving trees, holiday fundraisers, and holiday volunteer opportunities.
