The Alex Wilson Legacy Fund was established in cooperation with the Wilson Family to continue the life work of Alex “Tink” Wilson by supporting folklife programs in and around the Boulder area. The fund is administered by a three-member Board that reviews project submissions and determines grant awards. 

The Fund supports projects through small grants of $500 to $2,500 (with possible exceptional grants) in folk dance, folk song and story in the Boulder area. New ideas are preferred rather than the funding of existing projects or ongoing programs.

Proposals are invited at two times during the year and will be evaluated and decided upon within 30 days.
