Women Thriving. Colorado Rising.

Northern Colorado Regional committee

When Women Thrive, Northern Colorado Rises

As of November 2017, Fort Collins had a 2.3 percent unemployment rate and ranked 18th among U.S. cities for graduates with STEM degrees (based on size of the STEM industry, salary, and media rent). Yet, in spite of our thriving economy, Northern Colorado women are being left behind. Eleven percent of women 18 and older in Larimer County and 13 percent in Weld County live in poverty, 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 Northern Colorado community members with their time, talent, treasure, and testimony. To inquire about any of the following opportunities, please contact Kelly Rogenhagen, statewide development and events manager, at kellyr@wfco.org or 303-285-2970.

Join the Northern Colorado regional committee

Our Northern Colorado regional committee helps WFCO organize social events, education events, advocacy outreach, community partnerships, and much more. We are looking for more members to join this dynamic group of movement makers.

"I enjoy attending our functions because they are fun, focused and informative. The energy is awesome. Additionally, a group of like minded women is powerful and we get things done!" - Adriene Childress, Northern Colorado commitee member

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 social event in Fort Collins 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.
