CWSFA Opportunity Gifts

About the Gifts

Over the past 10 years, the Colorado Women’s Sports Fund Association has awarded more than  $135,000 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.
