The Women’s Fund of Weld County, Inc. was founded in 1999 by women from the Weld County community dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls. The Women’s Fund was established with the purpose of creating an endowment fund. This fund supports programs that address the unmet needs of women and girls in Weld County to enable them to become self-confident, independent, contributing members of the community.  Currently, the endowment balance is over $700,000.

Their Endowment:

The Women’s Fund of Weld County is an endowment fund; a permanent source of community capital. Earnings from the Fund are used to make annual grants to programs that address unmet needs of women and girls in Weld County. Since 1999, the Fund has grown to over $700,000 through many generous donors and successful fundraising events and has distributed grants totaling more than $450,000 to 190 programs in Weld County. The Women’s Fund is a component fund of the Weld Community Foundation which manages the endowment fund, enabling the Women’s Fund Board of Directors to concentrate on fulfilling our mission.

The Fund supports projects and programs which are sensitive to the cultural and special needs of women and enhance women’s educational success and self-sufficiency.

Projects which may:

  • Enable girls and women to become self-supporting through job training, education and job placement,

  • Focus on economic development, such as job creation
  • Assist women and girls in career counseling, business planning and job seeking skills
