Berthoud Bequest

Berthoud Bequest is a giving group of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado. A giving group is composed of community-minded people who pool their charitable dollars in a common fund. Members of this group enhance their understanding of philanthropy and their appreciation for the valuable work of local nonprofit agencies. Members are welcome to make their annual donation, observe its impact, and attend annual celebrations without further involvement. However, sharing time and talents on subcommittees that provide leadership to the giving group can make membership even more rewarding.

Because the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado is a tax-exempt public charity, donations to our giving groups are tax-deductible.

  • Berthoud Bequest has awarded $10,200 in grants since its inception in 2004. The Berthoud Bequest Fund is valued at $50,000. 
  • The group hosted its first social gathering at the home of Jane Vielehr. The 2008 summer event was at the home of Tom and Carol Patterson.
  • Membership levels are based on age of the donors:  Ages 20-29 ($200); Ages 30-39 ($300); Ages 40-49 ($400); Ages 50+ ($500).
