How to Donate
Your donation to Boulder Friends Meeting helps to support this Meeting, its charitable work, compassionate action in our local community, and projects of Friends around the world. Like most Friends meetings, we do not take collections during worship. Our members and attenders choose to contribute in other ways, both financially and through service activities.
We rely on donations to our General Fund to cover over 80% of our budget.
To earmark your donation for a specific project or the General Fund, enter the name as a memo on your check .
Donations to Boulder Friends Meeting are tax deductible, and donations of $100 or more are acknowledged by mail once a year in January.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generosity.

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is paid directly from an IRA to a qualified charity.
