WHO WE ARE
Building a Stronger
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.

"Growing up in Weld County, I believe that I have a unique perspective on the needs of women and girls of this region. From an early age, I have had a passion to give my time and resources for programs such as The Women’s Fund of Weld County that focuses on giving a hand up and not a hand out. Nothing is more important to me than providing opportunities that benefit women and girls in our very own community."
