There’s Not Enough Money To Rebuild From The Marshall Fire

In the aftermath of the Marshall Fire, an outpouring of donations flooded to victims who lost everything to the largest wildfire in Colorado history. 

The Community Foundation, a Boulder nonprofit, took up the reigns for collecting these donations which amounted to about $43 million. It is more than many communities get after a natural disaster, but only about 2 percent of the Marshall Fire’s destruction.

KGNU’s Alexis Kenyon spoke with Boulder Reporting Lab’s Tim Drugan about his recent investigation into how the Community Foundation decided to distribute the funding.

KGNU has been the recipient of past community foundation grants.
