2020 Annual Luncheon LOVE logo

2020 annual luncheon

Despite the unique circumstances we face, our Annual Luncheon is not going anywhere. We are excited to share our new House Party model that will give our sponsors additional benefits, party hosts unique opportunities, and the ability to partner with even more statewide guests! The Annual Luncheon will be a dynamic, engaging pre-produced virtual broadcast with special guest stars, local sheroes, community leaders, and the women and families that benefit from our work. Sponsors and hosts will be throwing individual events that we are calling “House Parties” anytime from Thursday, August 27th through Sunday, August 30th. Along with your sponsorship and host benefits, WFCO will also provide you with the ultimate House Party Kit to ensure a successful viewing event at your office, home, online or where ever works best for you.

Help Us Make It Right 

Like no other recent event in our history, COVID-19 has exacerbated the gender and racial inequalities that continue to obstruct the advancement of women and people of color. WFCO makes it easy to make an impact with our CARES Act – Make It Right campaign. Through the federal CARES Act, in 2020 you can donate up to $300 in cash to a qualified organization, such as WFCO, and your adjusted gross income will be reduced by up to $300—and you can still claim the standard deduction.

The Women’s Foundation of Colorado will be here in the year ahead and for generations to come to make it right for Colorado women and families. When you donate to WFCO, you help to ensure that women are not left behind. Instead, they are centered in Colorado’s relief and recovery efforts through our research, public policy, and grantmaking.

Your $300 charitable donation in 2020 + WFCO’s research, public policy, and grantmaking = Making It Right for Colorado women

Anti-Racism Resources 

"There is no shortage of media from which we can learn about white supremacy, anti-blackness, racial justice, and allyship. Listen to people of color about their experiences. Then use what you learn to take action in your community." - Lauren Y. Casteel, President & CEO

We've curated a list of books, movies, podcasts, and other resources to guide you in learning more about anti-racism, racial justice, and being an ally for people of color.
