The Colorado Women’s Education Foundation’s (CWEF) mission is to invest in women who are transforming their lives through education…for themselves, their families, and their communities.
In order to achieve our mission, CWEF’s overriding goal is to increase its endowment to $2 million by 2022 in order for the scholarship program to be self-sustaining.
CWEF has celebrated 40 years as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing scholarships to high-achieving Colorado women of non-traditional student age working for economic self-sufficiency through education. CWEF depends entirely on donations and wants to do more to empower women. Since its inception, CWEF has provided well over 500 women with scholarships totaling more than $400,000.
