The Alex Wilson Legacy Fund

The Alex Wilson Legacy Fund fosters projects in the Boulder area in the spirit of continuing the lifework of Alex “Tink” Wilson.  

For its first five years the organization operated as part of Boulder International Folk Dancers. In September 2017 the Fund became a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The fund is administered by a three-member Board that reviews projects submitted and determines grant awards. In addition, a six-member Advisory Board supports the Board and serves as a source of new candidates as members rotate on and off the Board each year.  

The funds distributed annually come from contributions made by the heirs of Alex’s estate and others. 

We hope this opportunity will inspire many to develop and create both long dreamed-of and heretofore-never imagined projects. We are creating the new folklife of our community every day!
