The CRC is a 501c3 non-profit located in downtown Boulder, CO. The CRC is staffed by committed environmental professionals whose expertise ranges from representing Boulder in the Colorado Legislature to the foremost expertise in backyard composting.
ReSource is a used building materials sales yard that is operated by the Center for ReSource Conservation.
ReSource was founded by the Center for ReSource Conservation in 1996 and is our main waste-reduction program. Think of ReSource as a division of the CRC. The ReSource sales yard is in east Boulder and the CRC main office is in downtown Boulder. Visit ReSource on the web by going to www.resourceyard.org.
We are a 501c3 non-profit organization and, like any healthy non-profit, we rely on a variety of sources for funding.
We have a base of individual donors, or people who donate money to us because they believe in what we do. For info about becoming an individual donor click here.
The CRC receives funding through the grant writing process. This is the least reliable but most exciting aspect of the work we do. The CRC writes grants throughout our program areas to explore new solutions to resource consumption issues. Funding organizations include: Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, independent foundations, and state and municipal organizations.
