Women's Impact Investing Giving Circle

Please join Julie Gorte of Pax World Funds, Colleen LaFontaine and Renee Ferrufino of the Women’s Foundation, Nicole Bagley of Arca, Sapelo, and Brenn Foundation, and Dr. Stephanie Gripne to launch the first Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle. Would you like to make your first 3-5 direct investments into women social ventures in Colorado, while learning about 40+ ways that you can activate your portfolio to support women? Are you an individual or organization who wants to learn about how to support social ventures (i.e. projects, nonprofits, small businesses, startups, cooperatives, and funds) led by and benefiting women in the state of Colorado? You can, with  less than a $5,000 tax-deductible donation that also supports The Women’s Foundation of Colorado in a social, fun, safe, low-risk setting? Please join us to learn about this innovative approach to identify, educate, and active individuals and organizations to support women social ventures.
