CWSFA Opportunity Gifts

About the Gifts

2019 Gift  Recepient Testamonial:


"We just wanted to thank CWSFA  so much for the opportunity gift and for the lovely banquet. We had a very nice time. The food was great and the company, too!! We sat with some women in the pond hockey group, and some of Victoria's friends came to support her.  

We really appreciate all you do to support Colorado women in sports and to provide young women the opportunity to develop their athletic skills.  This gift really made a huge difference for us and making club volleyball possible this year."


Over the past 11 years, the Colorado Women’s Sports Fund Association has awarded more than $200,000 in gifts to girls and women participating in sports. We strive to grow our gift program opportunities every year. We are proud to support those dedicated to the pursuit of sport and the positive influence it can have in their lives..

These gifts are designed to encourage athletic participation in all sports and to help women and girls achieve “the next level” in their sport. Applicants do not need to be enrolled in any academic school or institution. The gifts are open to females of any age and for any sport.

Help us, help female athletes - Donate to the Opportunity Gift Fund.  Every little bit helps!
