Overview:

Women's Fund of Weld County

Funding priority is focused on programming for girls and women and their economic self-sufficiency and self-esteem. Within that priority, the Women's Fund concentrates its funding in two strategic areas: girls' futures; and girls' and women's education, employment, training, and self-development. 

Our grant-making philosophy is to fund programs within non-profit organizations that address unmet needs of women and girls in Weld County which will enable them to become self-confident, independent and economically self-sufficient members of the community.

Funding Focus

Because income (not principal) from the Endowment Fund is distributed, contributions made to The Women's Fund of Weld County will continue to support women and girls for generations.

Our funding focus is solely for programs that support girls and women of Weld County.

Within this focus, the Women’s Fund concentrates its funding in two strategic areas:

  • girls’ futures; and
  • girls’ and women’s education, employment, training and self-development.

Grants will be evaluated based on:

  • greatest impact to women/girls who will benefit from the grant
  • alignment with the Women’s Fund Criteria
  • the quality and need for the project
