Empowerment Council 

Are you an emerging philanthropist?

Join The Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s (WFCO) Empowerment Council. The Empowerment Council generates a sustainable revenue stream for The Foundation to build opportunities and dismantle barriers to advance women’s economic self-sufficiency.

The Empowerment Council (EC) supports The Foundation through fundraising, planning and hosting community conversations, and generating awareness about the barriers women and girls in Colorado face and how WFCO is working to remove them. Being a part of this unique group gives you the opportunity to meet other generous, committed, and like-minded emerging philanthropists. Expand your network and increase your impact!

EC members make a one-year minimum gift of $500 or more, paid on a schedule that is convenient for you. For example, $500 annually, $600 at $150 quarterly, or $720 at $60 monthly, etc. Choose a combination that works best for you.

We are passionate about making sure every woman and girl in Colorado achieves her full potential. If you are too, join today!

“My favorite thing about the Empowerment Council has been getting the opportunity to meet a diverse group of amazing women that all share a passion for helping women and girls in our community.”

– Torrie Starkweather, 2016-17 Empowerment Council Co-Chair

“The Empowerment Council feeds my soul in many ways. In addition to providing meaningful opportunities to support and engage with women across the state, the Empowerment Council contributes to my own personal and professional growth. EC is an amazing support system of women who broaden each other’s horizons. No matter how I feel about life before walking into an EC meeting, I invariably leave feeling inspired, supported, and valued.
