DONOR SPOTLIGHT

Donors Make a Difference

Kathleen and Mike Beatty know the power of philanthropy to advance change for women and their families. “When you help women, you’re helping generation after generation develop and grow. It’s not just a short-term gain: it’s a long-term purpose," said Mike.

That's why they started a donor-advised fund at The Women's Foundation of Colorado. In addition to investing in women and girls, they are passionate about education, finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, and creating a philanthropic legacy with their family. “We want our giving to be more strategic, and this gives us a great opportunity to do that. And we want our daughters to become heavily involved in philanthropy," explained Kathleen.
