About Us

We are Resource Central — thirty people in Boulder determined to make conservation so simple that you don’t even realize you’re doing it. Established in 1976, we’re an innovative nonprofit with programs that help people save water, conserve energy, and reduce waste. Formerly known as the Center for ReSource Conservation, our new name reflects how we’ve become a community hub for high-impact conservation programs, helping nearly 600,000 people improve their homes, conserve natural resources, and save money. And we’re just getting started.

Putting Conservation into Action.

Vision Statement:

Resource Central is proud to be a four-star nonprofit, the top rating by Charity Navigator, America’s premier independent charity evaluator.
