A nonprofit formed by Jared Polis to guide his transition into the governor’s office has quietly transitioned into an advocacy organization for his agenda, The Colorado Sun has learned.

The Democrat formed Boldly Forward Colorado — a nonprofit organization that can accept unlimited personal and corporate contributions and not disclose its donors — after he won the 2018 election in order to help him recruit members of his administration and form the policy platform for his first term.

Now, it’s shifted its focus to support efforts to lower the cost of living in Colorado, including expanding access for early childhood education, addressing rising health care costs and creating sustainable fiscal reform.
