I think the most important and interesting thing I did in November was to decide to work to connect the Boulder community with the New Orleans community and build at least one house there. Amy Antoinette Brown came to Boulder and we had a lively and educational luncheon on November 28th at the Community Foundation and even had an article in the Daily Camera about the event. Thank you to all of the people who attended, and those who wanted to but had other commitments.
We have created a fund at the Community Foundation called Boulder Building New Orleans. It will cost about $125,000 to build a house which will provide housing for 3 senior citizens. The house will be designed by architects Coleman Coker and Jonathan Tate, who have been working with Amy Brown in the Treme district for several years. Administrative costs are being paid by Brad and me so that every dollar
contributed to the fund goes directly to building the Boulder House. All donations are tax deductible. In addition, Brad and I have decided to build fundraising momentum by announcing a $10,000 matching grant for this project.
If you're interested in contributing to Boulder Building New Orleans please email me or contact Leah Sullivan, Grants Adminstrator at the Community Foundation at 303.442.0436 ext. 130 or email to email@example.com.
