Why We Give:

Women of Color Making a Difference (WOCMAD)

Creating Safe and Bold Space for Women to Give Collectively

Women of Color Making a Difference was formed in 2020, enlisting 11 Black women as members. WOCMAD was started after its organizer, Sandra Roberts-Taylor, approached The Denver Foundation to find out how to get involved with an existing circle at the foundation, which led to her starting her own giving circle with friends. WOCMAD hopes to inspire other similar groups to sprout up and invest in the community. “It’s definitely gratifying to know that somewhere down the road, we are going to make a difference,” says Roberts-Taylor.
