Bank On Boulder County invites local community organizations and financial organizations to partner with us. With your help, all Boulder County area residents can gain access to free- or low-cost bank accounts and take steps toward financial freedom. Click below or email info@BankOnBoulderCounty.org to connect with Bank On Boulder County.

Our goal is to bring as many of the estimated 5,000 unbanked and 15,000 underbanked households in Boulder County into the financial mainstream by helping them to open low-cost, starter bank accounts. To accomplish this goal, we turned to financial institutions in the County to demonstrate leadership and to help remove the banking barriers that low-income families face. We continue to partner with ten banks and credit unions across Boulder County, to help people open accounts and enter the financial mainstream.

By working with nonprofits in Boulder County, Financial Partners are able to identify customers and develop new strategies to reach unbanked customers. Staff offering financial training courses have made real connections in the community.

  • Help bank the unbanked by offering the Bank On Boulder County product at your Boulder County
    branch locations.
