Women and Philanthropy hosts several events throughout the year to bring our community together and learn more about the exciting happenings at Colorado State University. We typically partner with other areas on campus to highlight the programs, research and impact women are having on campus. We hope to see you at an upcoming Women and Philanthropy event. 

Volunteer with us

Women and Philanthropy partners with several programs on-campus and in our community to provide you with the opportunity to volunteer your time and support the many worthy causes that impact our students and the larger Fort Collins community.
