The Women's Foundation of Colorado gathered over 2,000 people together for its annual Denver luncheon on Thursday. There was a myriad of guests and information flow for the crowd:
The Women's Foundation conducts research into the state of girls and women in Colorado and uses this research to educate the stakeholders in women's issues in Colorado. The foundation also works to effect public policy reform to increase self sufficiency in women. The foundation supports nonprofits working directly with women and girls with grants. To accomplish all this, the Women's Foundation of Colorado will raise over 1.4 million dollars in 2011.
