2021 Bluebird Charitable Fund

Another record year in the books charged us to give back to our community more than ever before. Each year, Bluebird maintains a charitable fund and donates a portion of proceeds from every closing commission the firm makes. The fund is comprised of contributions from all our associates as well as the company. It grows throughout the year and is given directly to local organizations and members of our community in need. In 2021, Bluebird was able to raise over $10,000 for local causes and charities.

Our charitable giving committee comes together at the end of each year to review compelling causes nominated by our associates to receive grants from our charitable fund. Among this year’s recipients are Living Journeys, CB State of Mind, PAWS, Mountain Roots, Gunnison Senior Rec Center, GVH Behavioral Health, Tough Enough to Wear Pink, Special Olympics Colorado, Crested Butte Community School PTA, Save the Majestic, Crested Butte Community School Boys Soccer, Adopt a Family, Project Hope and Gunnison Valley Mentors. Bluebird is grateful to be able to give back and support our local community.

Living Journeys: a cancer support group that provides counseling, financial support and transportation to locally affected families.
