Colorado Funders for Inclusiveness and Equity (COFIE) is a voluntary effort of local funders who have in common an interest in advancing and promtoing inclusiveness and equity. The group believes in building on best practices to increase the effectiveness of philanthropy.
The group has two purposes. First, 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 will provide ideas, information, and educational opportunities to interested parties.
Second, the group will serve as a support network for members as they educate themselves about inclusiveness, equity, diversity, and anti-oppression practices. The group will offer a supportive and trusting learning environment for all where ideas can be shared and discused openly.
