Boulder County Nonprofits make a $254.8 Million Dollar
Impact on Local Economy
When you support a nonprofit, you are supporting people and animals in need as well as the local economy. CU’s Leeds School of Business conducted a study looking at 53 Boulder County human services nonprofits. These agencies, including TLC Learning Center, directly employed 1,349 people and provided $162.5 million in services.
This in turn yielded $254.8 million in overall economic benefit, including 2,147 jobs and $124.1 million in wages. When looking at the total value added to the GDP by agency operations, these nonprofit human services agencies were responsible for $142 million of the $19.3 billion local economy. Wow!
So when you support TLC through contributions, scholarship grants for low income and at-risk children, you are also supporting the Boulder County economy, as well as all of the directors, teachers, accountants, fundraisers, health care providers, receptionists, cooks, drivers, and more who make nonprofit services possible. Thank you!
