Women Thriving. Colorado Rising.

Funders Recognize the power of Our Knowledge, Expertise, Statewide Network

In addition to our generous individual donors and the local corporations and foundations who sustain our work, several national foundations also invest in WFCO to enhance their own missions and to help us achieve ours. Through our research on women’s economic status and opportunities, our trusted voice at the Capitol, and grantmaking to organizations throughout Colorado – funders recognize that we have the deep knowledge, expertise, and statewide network to make meaningful change for women in Colorado. We are grateful for their support and partnership.
