Provide the gift that lasts a lifetime: an education! The Colorado Women’s Education Foundation(CWEF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing scholarships to Colorado women of non-traditional student age. CWEF believes education is the key to helping women become more economically self-sufficient. CWEF wants to do more to provide equity for Colorado women by providing financial support in the form of scholarships to more women each year enabling them to pursue an education and a career. Please consider becoming a CWEF supporter. Since its inception, CWEF has provided over 600 scholarships to women totaling almost half a million dollars.

PLEDGING SCHOLAR – $1,000 and above

You may give $1,000 or more as a lump sum or as an annual scholarship pledge over a period of  years.

▪    After completing the $1,000 level pledge, the donor becomes a Lifetime Sponsor.
▪    After completing the $2,000 level pledge or more, the donor becomes a Named Scholarship Sponsor designated by the level of funds donated.
▪    All Scholarship Sponsors will be recognized as such on the CWEF website and in Annual Reports.


Gifts of all amounts are always welcome and appreciated. Multiple donors’ gifts will be combined together to assist more Colorado women to complete their education and become economically self-sufficient. You will be recognized by name on CWEF’s website and in the Annual Report.


Recognize a friend, family member, or respected associate by giving a gift in his/her honor. The honoree will be notified of your gift and it will be acknowledged in the Annual Report. At a loved one’s passing, suggest donations be made to CWEF in lieu of flowers or gifts. Consider establishing a memorial fund to rather raise donations in his/her honor.
