Every organization benefits from the energy and skills of those who rally around it… from individuals completing the day-to-day tasks that ensure the organization runs smoothly to supporters spreading the word on its behalf. The Colorado Women’s Education Foundation has grown because of the enthusiasm and hard work its supporters have displayed over the years. Our future growth is dependant on the continued support of individuals and organizations that believe, as we do, that education is the key to transforming lives. Below are ways you can support the Colorado Women’s Education Foundation. Find one that works for you and begin writing a success story of tomorrow.

Join the Board of Trustees: We’re looking for candidates who hold the mission of the Foundation close to their hearts, have time to commit to organizing, planning and fundraising and want to align themselves with others who have a passion for women and education.

Volunteer: Don’t have time to commit to being a trustee? 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.

Connect Trustees to Interested Corporations/Foundations: Does your business or place of employment offer a matching gift fund? Do you know of a business or foundation seeking a partnership with another of a similar mission? A single introduction can be the first step toward creating a valuable partnership and strengthening the work of several organizations.

Become a Pledging or Lifetime Scholar: Pledge to give $100 per year for up to ten years to become a Pledging Scholar. A one-time or accumulated gift of $1,000 or more becomes a Lifetime Scholar.

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 or wedding. A donation to the Foundation is a great way to honor a friend, and it’s a gift that will last a lifetime.

Be a Foundation Liaison: CBW and BPW members, become that person “in the know.” Get regular updates about Foundation activities. Share Foundation news and information at your local meetings or by encouraging articles in your local newsletter.

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 women throughout Colorado. As the demand grows, so will our ability to increase our support.

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