$80,000 Goal

In 2023, women face compounded challenges due to historical and systemic economic barriers, alongside increasing restrictions on healthcare, education, and gender expression rights. We need your help to protect and advance opportunities for all Colorado women, including those of color, transgender women, and gender-expansive individuals, and their families. Your gift to The Women's Foundation of Colorado will empower 60+ grantee organizations moving women forward in every Colorado county, provide loans to women entrepreneurs and cash assistance to women and their families struggling to make ends meet, support women-of-color community leaders, and help us pass policies that protect women's progress and spur economic mobility. 

Will you donate today to the only statewide community foundation dedicated exclusively to safeguarding and accelerating women's progress?



“I didn’t sleep when applying for grants, and I only heard no. It feels like someone finally saw me. I felt like I was taken seriously.”

Mission

Catalyzing community to advance and accelerate economic opportunities for Colorado women and their families.

Background Statement

WFCO is the only community foundation in the state focused on gender, racial, and economic equity. We invest in the inherent gifts and talents of women so they have what they need to be leaders in their lives, their families, their businesses, and their communities. We do this through philanthropy, community, public policy advocacy, grantmaking, and research.

Recent legislation and ballot measures we helped to pass through our advocacy include equal pay for equal work, paid family and medical leave, universal pre-kindergarten, and eliminating state sales tax on diaper, incontinence, and period products. We also granted more than $2.6 million in the last fiscal year to nonprofits across the state through our WINcome and Women & Girls of Color Fund grantmaking programs.
