Julia's Story: When Women Thrive, We All Rise

Our Impact


In January 2018, WFCO awarded grants to 23 nonprofit organizations statewide working to advance and accelerate economic security for women.


We advocated for an increased minimum wage and worked with our public policy partners to pass six more bills in 2017 that create more pathways to prosperity for Colorado women.


Since 2016, 32 women's funds that comprise Prosperity Together have collectively invested $58.4 million into programs advancing women's economic security in the U.S.

- Marilyn Taylor, WFCO Honorary Trustee
