Our Music and Community programs have teamed up to create this new fund.
Bohemian Fund grants support applicants who also aim to make a meaningful impact in these areas. This Fund sharpens the Foundation’s focus on these areas and brings our love of popular music to the surface. Music builds community. It unites us, inspires us, and changes us. We believe that many approaches, including popular music and popular culture, can all play important roles as we journey together on a path toward equity.
Bohemian Fund evolved from Bohemian Foundation’s focus on recognizing inequities. Grants made through Bohemian Fund celebrate our rich differences, as well as acknowledge longstanding disparities. Bohemian Foundation invests in organizations that make change. The fund supports organizations that value diversity and inclusion, foster belonging, and strive to advance equity. Our community is well-positioned to address challenges and to advance real change. We believe that by working together over time, we will move toward equity and a community where everyone belongs.
All grantees work within the Poudre School District boundary. Applicants may request grants for Program, Project, or General Support. A committee of community members and Bohemian Foundation staff selects grantees twice a year. Bohemian Fund replaces Pharos Fund, which focused on supporting nonprofits to build a stronger local community, and Muse, a grant program which focused on building community through music.
