Women Thriving. Colorado Rising.

Communities of Giving

Philanthropists fuel our work creating systemic change for Colorado women and their families. We have many new and longtime donors found a home at WFCO, in our communities of giving and at events throughout the state. As a community foundation, our commitment to philanthropy by women (and men!) for women and girls is also a commitment to making philanthropy accessible to all. Thousands of generous donors gave WFCO gifts from $10 to $100,000. Thank you for helping us make meaningful changes for Colorado women and their families. Learn more about our Communities of Giving below.
