Your partnership, dedication, and generosity are the most powerful tools we have

Power of Extended Philanthropy

PEP is committed to creating sustained support and security for WFCO's mission. Systemic change takes time and requires long-term investment. PEP members are women and men who pledge an unrestricted gift of at least $1,000 per year for three years to ensure WFCO can make better plans, fund more powerful projects, and make a difference over time.

Collectively, PEP members' investments comprise 20% of WFCO's annual operating budget and total more than $3 million to date. PEP truly demonstrates WFCO's motto: Together. We are Powerful. Learn more

Empowerment Council

The Empowerment Council is a community of emerging philanthropists who seek to effect change and contribute to the empowerment of Colorado's women and girls through economic self-sufficiency. Council members make a one-year-minimum unrestricted gift of $500, which supports WFCO's goals while providing an opportunity for members to meet other young philanthropists. Members also plan and host several "community conversations," which are educational events that bring together individuals, students, nonprofits, and businesses for lively discussions. Learn more

Annual Luncheon

Our Annual Luncheon is one of the state's largest annual gatherings of diverse communities and sectors focusing on women and girls. If you would like to be more involved, our luncheon committee helps us raise awareness and secure support among companies and individuals statewide. It is largely through their efforts that the Annual Luncheon attracts approximately 2,000 people each year. This year's luncheon is September 28, 2017.

Donor-Advised Funds

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a philanthropic giving vehicle maintained at WFCO to support the causes and organizations serving women and girls that you love most. A DAF allows you to contribute to multiple charitable organizations, take advantage of staff expertise to fulfill your giving wishes, inspire the next generation, and build a legacy of philanthropy for your family while receiving a tax benefit. DAFs can be opened with WFCO for as little as $2,500. Learn more or contact Renee Ferrufino, vice president of development, 303-285-2969, or

Statewide Events and Committees

Across our five regions - Boulder, Colorado Springs, Northern Colorado, Pueblo, and the Vail Valley - we have annual educational and fundraising events that are open to the public. Our committee members in the regions plan these events so that women and girls in their regions and throughout Colorado can be hopeful about their futures. Learn more about our events or regional committees.

Women Will
