WFCO was founded 30 years ago to fight the feminization of poverty by empowering women to create change through philanthropy. All that we do is grounded in a core belief that women of every background and identity deserve the opportunity to thrive.

Ensuring that Colorado women have access to family planning services so they can choose when and whether to start a family is critical in advancing economic opportunities for them. When pregnancies are planned, women have a better chance for greater career stability and earning potential. And when they thrive, so do their children, families, communities, and all of Colorado.

WFCO has a solid history of supporting legislation and budget items that increase access to long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC), and opposing efforts that threaten a woman’s health and opportunity by limiting her ability to plan for childbearing. We strongly disagree with the current administration’s decision to roll back the federal requirement for employers to include birth control coverage in their health insurance plans. In doing so, the economic advancement of hundreds of thousands of women is jeopardized. With your help, we will continue to use our voice, resources, knowledge, and networks to ensure that women have the opportunity to decide if and when they want to start a family, and optimize their chances of achieving economic security.
