CO Springs Regional Committee

Colorado Springs women were pivotal in the early days of WFCO, and the strong tradition of engagement and support continues. Through planning an annual luncheon of 300-400 guests and supporting educational events throughout the year, the Colorado Springs Regional Committee is building a network for women, girls, and community partners from the region and growing regional strategic philanthropy.

By supporting WFCO, you will be working toward systemic change with others from your community to address issues facing Colorado women and girls:

  • In Colorado Springs, 12% percent of women are living at poverty level.

  • In Colorado Springs, single mothers earn approximately $25,000, and the cost of child care can be nearly half their income.

  • Women working in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields earn 33% more than in other fields and Colorado has the highest number per capita of entry-level STEM jobs, yet women represent only 24% of the STEM work-force. Too many women are discouraged at a young age from pursuing their scientific interests and lack female role models and mentors who could help them achieve success in STEM careers.
