    Colorado Gives Day 2020: Support the CWBA Foundation

    The Colorado Women's Bar Association Foundation's (CWBA Foundation) mission and purpose is to promote the advancement of women in law, and to protect and promote the welfare of all women.  We accomplish this mission by providing annual scholarships to law students at area universities, as well as supporting the Colorado Women's Bar Association's (CWBA) charitable and educational work. 

    Support the CWBA Foundation on December 8th!

    Colorado's largest day of giving, Colorado Gives Day, is taking place on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. On this day, thousands of people come together to support Colorado nonprofits like ours. 

    When you donate to the CWBAF Foundation, you're helping us expand our current scholarship program and continue efforts to strengthen women leaders in our industry and community.

    • Hyatt Regency Denver Convention Center

    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 15th Anniversary Raising the Bar dinner is scheduled for Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center.

    Nominations for the 15th Anniversary event will open in Spring 2021. Please watch this website for more details.


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.
