Memorial Scholarships


Helping women through memorial scholarships

Memorial charitable donations made to CWEF, in honor of someone special who has died, are a powerful and lasting way to give the gift of education and economic self-sufficiency to Colorado women in the name and memory of a loved one. At a loved one’s passing, it can be suggested that donations be made to CWEF in lieu of flowers or gifts. Memorial donations provide tax benefits for one’s generosity and provide a legacy for many generations to come.

With a total donation of $1,000 or more, your loved one will be recognized by listing his/her name in CWEF’s annual reports and on this website page “Memorial Scholarships.” It is also encouraged to have a link to a memorial PDF page with more information about and a photo of your loved one. Donors can be listed on this memorial PDF page as well.
