WELCOME to the Colorado Women’s Bar Association Foundation (CWBA Foundation) webpage!
The CWBA Foundation's mission and purpose is to promote the advancement of women in the law, and to protect and promote the welfare of all women. The CWBA Foundation raises funds to support programs and activities that meet this mission.
We have been doing this for nearly thirty years. Check out our history and a list of current board members on the “About Us” page. Review a partial list of past projects and activities on the “Events and Activities” page.
We have two primary methods of raising funds: the Circle of Minerva (members donate $150 per year for five years) and the Raising the Bar annual dinner. More information on these programs can be found on the “Circle of Minerva” and “Raising The Bar” web pages. We also accept one-time donations by clicking on the proper button below.

SAVE THE DATE: 2019 "RAISING THE BAR" DINNER - September 25
Each year, the CWBA Foundation honors women lawyers who have made a difference in our communities and have "raised the bar" for all of us. The evening is always a memorable one with about 400 attendees gathering to celebrate the accomplishments of our honorees and to thank them for paving the way for other women in Colorado and around the nation.
The 2019 Raising the Bar dinner will be held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Risk Takers: Women Lawyers Who Raise the Bar by Overcoming Fear to Take on New Challenges," will honor women attorneys who have stepped outside of their comfort zone and found success in entirely new endeavors.
Registration Opens Soon!
