The Womanifesto

A Nonpartisan Ballot Guide for Everyone Who Cares About Strengthening Colorado


noun: a public proclamation of policy goals, intentions, or views, especially one issued before an election; a policy statement or platform

As a community, when we vote, we shape the future.

The Women’s Foundation of Colorado (WFCO) works for a future where women of every background, age, and identity thrive. How do we do this? As the only community foundation in our state focused exclusively on economic mobility for women, we use several strategies: WFCO informs our community through research. We translate information into action with our grantmaking partnerships. We build more equitable systems for all Colorado women through nonpartisan advocacy.

WFCO created our ballot guide, The Womanifesto, with statewide input from a diverse group of Coloradans committed to elevating opportunities for women to strengthen our state.
