Women Thriving. Colorado Rising.

Colorado Springs Regional committee

When Women Thrive, Colorado Springs Rises

As of September 2017, Colorado Springs had a 2.6% unemployment rate and ranked among the top-25 U.S. cities for graduates with STEM degrees (based on size of the STEM industry, salary, and median rent).

Despite our thriving economy, Colorado Springs women are being left behind. Twelve percent of women 18 and older in El Paso County live in poverty. That’s 39,734 women – enough to nearly fill Air Force Academy’s Falcon Stadium. And thousands more live just above the federal poverty line and must remain on work supports to meet the basic needs of their families. This isn’t just a devastating statistic – it’s a missed opportunity for all of Colorado. WFCO is working to change that through the power of our community, philanthropy, and impact.

It’s impossible for WFCO to do our work for women and their families without statewide support and local advocates. We seek involvement from Colorado Springs community members with their time, talent, treasure, and testimony. To inquire about any of the following opportunities, please contact Renee Ferrufino, vice president of development, at reneef@wfco.org.

Join the Colorado Springs regional committee

Our Colorado Springs regional committee helps WFCO organize the Colorado Springs Annual Luncheon, educational activities, advocacy outreach, community partnerships, and much more. We have a vibrant, active, and engaged Colorado Springs regional committee, and are looking for more members to join this dynamic group of movement makers.

Sponsor an event

WFCO partners with many different communities, including the business community, to advance opportunities for women. Is your company committed to inclusiveness, the advancement of women, and improving your community? Sponsor our next annual luncheon or educational event and receive great visibility and appreciation for your corporate generosity.

Give today

Financial contributions to The Foundation are vital to our continued longevity and our community of donors are valuable partners in our work. There are a variety of ways to give, from one-time donations to donor-advised funds and sustaining groups like the Power of Extended Philanthropy (PEP).

Share your voice

In order for The Women’s Foundation to represent women and their families in Colorado, it is critical that we hear voices and get feedback from people across the state. You can support our work by sharing feedback on what matters to you and your community. Join us at an upcoming educational event.

Regional committee meetings

WFCO's regional committees meet regularly in Boulder, Colorado Springs, Northern Colorado, Pueblo, and the Vail Valley. Contact Renee Ferrufino, vice president of development, at reneef@wfco.org to get involved at an upcoming meeting in your area.
