Consent to On-Line Delivery of Shareholder Communications for Boulder Growth & Income Fund, Inc. (the "Fund")
Thank you for choosing to receive your shareholder communications and other information, when available, online!
Accessing your annual meeting materials (annual report, notice of annual meeting and proxy statement, and proxy/voting instruction card) for the Fund online requires that you have access to the Internet, which may result in charges to you from your Internet Service Provider and/or telephone companies.
Your consent will be effective for accessing all future annual meeting materials, and will continue in effect if your e-mail address is current or until it is cancelled by you.
By consenting to electronic delivery and for as long as your consent remains effective, you are agreeing to receive various communications from the Fund and its affiliated businesses, including the following: annual report, notice of annual meeting and proxy statement, e-mail, mail, or telephone solicitations from the Fund or its affiliated businesses, and proxy/voting instruction card online, and you waive the delivery of a printed notice of the Fund’s annual meetings. You are also agreeing that the online notice of the annual meeting is equivalent to the printed delivery of written notice of the meeting. You may always revoke your consent or specifically request that a copy of these materials be mailed to you.
How Does Internet Access Work?

Prior to an Annual Meeting, you will receive an e-mail notice that will provide the links to the annual meeting materials (annual report, notice of annual meeting and proxy statement, and proxy/voting instruction card). You should configure your e-mail program's "spam-block" or other filters so as permit receipt of these communications from the Fund.
If I Choose Electronic Delivery To Receive This Material Online, How Can I Vote My Shares?
You may vote your shares via the Internet whether or not you consent to receive your annual meeting materials online. When annual meeting materials are distributed, you will receive an e-mail notice with links to the annual meeting materials, such as annual report, notice of annual meeting and proxy statement. This e-mail notice will have the necessary instructions to vote your proxy/voting instruction online.

Description of the On-Line Shareholder Communications Service and Terms and Conditions
Please read the following terms and conditions carefully before using or enrolling in the Fund's on-line shareholder communications service, as your use of any service will signify your consent to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth below. If you agree to the terms and conditions set forth herein, click "'I Accept" at the bottom. You should print and retain a copy of this agreement for your records.
By enrolling in this on-line delivery service with the Fund, you agree to receive announcements by telephone, mail, or electronic delivery via e-mail about shareholder communications materials and other matters concerning the Fund, its adviser(s), and affiliated businesses. Electronic materials are made available electronically by the Fund, its adviser(s), its affiliated businesses, and other third party service providers on behalf of the Fund, the adviser(s) or its affiliated businesses. Semi-annual and annual reports; proxy statements; prospectuses, managed distribution notices, and newsletters are examples of shareholder communications that may be made available electronically. Other announcements related to the Fund, its adviser(s), and/or their affiliated businesses may also be provided to you, whether by telephone, mail, or electronic delivery. E-mail announcements generally will contain a link to the Internet address (URL) where relevant materials can be found. Materials referenced within the e-mail announcement may be viewed electronically via the Internet; you can also choose whether to print those materials for your added convenience. Not all communications may be available electronically; if the materials are not made available electronically, you will receive the standard printed materials by regular mail and no announcement will be made by e-mail.
Your enrollment will be effective on an ongoing basis unless you change or cancel your enrollment. You are encouraged to enroll your shares in Direct Registration System, or DRS. DRS is a system that enables you to electronically move shares currently held in your broker-dealer's "street" name to your name and provides you with greater flexibility in receiving communications directly from the Fund. Contact your broker-dealer to find out if they offer direct registration and whether they charge a fee for this service. If you choose to use DRS and have more than one account, you must enroll all accounts in order to receive e-mail announcements for every account that holds shares of the Fund.
Failure of E-Mail Address
If, in an effort to send you an announcement, your e-mail address proves to be invalid, the Fund may cancel your enrollment in the on-line shareholder communications service and send you a hard-copy notification of the cancellation. This notification will provide the URL to the electronic material, and will contain instructions on how to re-enroll in the on-line shareholder communications service offered by the Fund.
