COFIE exists to support, educate and embolden Colorado funders to lead the movement toward inclusivity and equity in philanthropy.
The group serves as a resource to local funders as they challenge their thinking and consider implementing changes within their own organizations regarding inclusiveness and equity. The group provides ideas, information, and educational opportunities to interested parties.
Second, the group serves as a support network for members as they educate themselves about inclusiveness, equity, diversity, and anti-oppression practices. The group offers a confidential, respectful and trusting learning environment for all where ideas can be shared and discussed openly.
