How To Apply

Grants

At our 2nd Annual Awards Banquet in January, the Colorado Women’s Sports Fund Association awarded $5,500 in grant money to programs in Northern Colorado that share our vision of creating opportunities for girls and women to participate in sports. 

2016 Grant Winners

The Colorado Women’s Sports Fund Association (CWSFA) provides grants to non-profit organizations in Northern Colorado that promote the participation of females in sporting activities. Over the past 9 years, the CWSFA has awarded $24,500 in grants to local organizations.


CWSFA works with 501c3 organizations who provide sports programming to females, such as (but not limited to) clubs, associations and recreation departments, who encourage females of all ages to participate in sports. These programs could include purchase of equipment or payment of fees to participate in clinics, leagues, or other programs as identified by these agencies. The CWSFA will annually designate a certain portion of its revenues to fund these opportunities.


The Colorado Women's Sports Fund Association maintains the ability to designate a portion of revenues to fund programs in which lack of funding (i.e., for equipment, facilities, team fees, etc.) is a barrier to participation by girls and women.
