Every organization, including the Colorado Women’s Education Foundation (CWEF), benefits from the energy and skills of those who rally around it . . . from individuals completing the day-to-day tasks to supporters spreading the word on its behalf. CWEF has grown because of the enthusiasm, hard work, and financial commitment its supporters have displayed over the years. Our future growth is dependent upon the continued encouragement and financial support of individuals and organizations that believe, as we do, that education is the key to transforming lives. Below are some ways you can support CWEF. We encourage you to find at least one way to get involved and begin writing a success story of tomorrow.

Become a foundation liaison: Colorado Business Women/Business Professional Women members, become that person “in the know.” Get regular updates about Foundation activities. Share CWEF’s news and information at your local meetings or by providing articles for your local’s newsletter.

Become a Pledging or Lifetime Scholar: Pledge to give $100 or more per year for up to 10 years to become a Pledging Scholar. With an accumulated gift of $1,000 or more, you will become a Lifetime Scholar.

Connect trustees to interested corporations and/or foundations: Does your business or place of employment offer a matching gift for your donation? Do you know of a business or foundation seeking a sponsorship opportunity and/or partnership with another of a similar mission? A single introduction can be the first step toward creating a valuable sponsorship or partnership and strengthening the work of several organizations.

Create a Named Scholarship: These unique scholarships recognize and honor the individual and/or organization for which they are named. These scholarships are a vital form of funding for the Foundation. They can be a one-time contribution or a multiyear contribution providing financial sustainability through ongoing scholarships to worthy Colorado women.

Encourage women you know to apply for a scholarship: The Foundation’s scholarship program is as strong as its demand. We continue to receive a record number of applications each year. Our goal is to provide more and larger scholarships to non-traditional aged women throughout Colorado. As the demand grows, so will our ability to increase our support.

Give the Gift of Education: We all know how hard it can be to find just the right gift for someone’s birthday, anniversary, graduation, and/or wedding. A donation to CWEF is a great way to honor a friend, and it’s a gift that will last a lifetime. We also welcome gifts in memoriam of a loved one. Including CWEF in your estate plan is a wonderful legacy to leave those who benefit, as well as your community.

Volunteer: Add your name to our volunteer list. We are always in need of individuals and organizations willing to help with tasks large or small. We will call on you to share your valued skills as the needs arise.

To learn more about any of these opportunities, call the Foundation office at 303-443-2573, e-mail us at office@cwef.org, or talk with a Trustee. Our gift is in giving to others. Join us in making a difference in the lives of Colorado women.
