    Colorado Gives Day 2022: Support the CWBA Foundation

    Colorado's largest day of giving, Colorado Gives Day, is taking place on Tuesday, December 7, 2021. On this day, thousands of people come together to support Colorado nonprofits like ours.

    When you donate to the Colorado Women's Bar Association Foundation (CWBAF or CWBA Foundation), you're helping us expand our current scholarship program and continue efforts to strengthen women leaders in the practice of law and our community.

    Every gift is tax-deductible and helps us reach our goal of 100 donations! Thanks to the $1.6 million Colorado Gives Day Incentive Fund from Community First Foundation, your donation goes further on Colorado Gives Day.

    Each year, the Colorado Women's Bar Association Foundation (CWBAF) honors women lawyers who have made a difference in our communities and have "raised the bar" for all of us. The evening promises to be memorable, with attendees gathering in person and remotely to celebrate the accomplishments of our honorees and thank them for paving the way for other women in Colorado and around the nation.

    The 2022 Raising the Bar celebration is scheduled for Thursday, September 15, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency Denver Colorado Convention Center Hotel.

    Nominations for honorees will open in Spring 2022! 


The CWBA Foundation provides an annual scholarship to a law student at both the University of Colorado School of Law and the University of Denver Sturm College of Law who best exemplifies our mission. Previously, the scholarship was $2,500 per year. However, for the five-year period 2016 through 2020, the scholarship amount may vary year to year as we fund an endowed scholarship. For years 2021 and beyond, it is our goal to fund each scholarship at a $5,000 level or above. Click Here to view the requirements for the scholarships and a list of past scholarship recipients on the Scholarships and Grants page. You can donate to the scholarship program on the Scholarships and Grants page as well. 


The CWBA Foundation has also funded studies on the wage gap between female and male lawyers in Colorado, co-funded a national study about part-time partnership positions, and much more. Often, the programs funded by the CWBA Foundation are the programs that are put on by the CWBA itself. For example, the CWBA Foundation funded the CWBA’s successful program, Storming the Bench. Please see a partial list of past programs and activities on the “Past Projects and Activities” page.

Colorado Women's Bar Association Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
