2019 Annual Luncheon

Thank you to all of those who joined WFCO and nearly 2,300 passionate supporters on October 11 to write a new chapter for Colorado women! If you were at our Annual Luncheon, "Many Stories, One Vision," you witnessed the impact we can have when diverse Coloradans come together to support a common vision. You also learned that U.S. organizations serving women and girls receive only 1.6 percent of all charitable contributions. We believe that together we can change that! Your generous donations will power WFCO to do more, learn more, and change more for the future of women in our state. If you missed the event, you can still be part of that change. Once upon a time is now.

DONOR SPOTLIGHT

Donors Make a Difference

Kathleen and Mike Beatty know the power of philanthropy to advance change for women and their families. “When you help women, you’re helping generation after generation develop and grow. It’s not just a short-term gain: it’s a long-term purpose," said Mike.

That's why they started a donor-advised fund at The Women's Foundation of Colorado. In addition to investing in women and girls, they are passionate about education, finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, and creating a philanthropic legacy with their family. “We want our giving to be more strategic, and this gives us a great opportunity to do that. And we want our daughters to become heavily involved in philanthropy," explained Kathleen.

Rage donate

We don’t have to – and shouldn’t – wait for a breaking story or viral campaign to make a difference for women and girls. Consistent, sustained giving not only addresses the most critical needs of today, it’s an investment in systemic change for our future.
