In 2009, a few organizations in Greeley were serving women’s financial needs but none provided immediate assistance. That same year, Women2Women Founder, Kay Broderius shared her idea of an organization that provided financial assistance to women in need with nine other Weld County women.

These ten women all agreed that an organization that could respond quickly to women’s immediate financial needs would be unique and Women2Women (W2W) was formed and received 501(c)(3) status. The first W2W fundraising effort was for each of the ten board members to ask ten friends for $100 in 100 days. Just 31 days later, $11,000 was raised and W2W was off and running.

The first assistance payment was given to a UNC Student who was graduating and in need of financial help with her utility bills. She had to give up one of her three jobs in order to complete her final semester and W2W’s assistance provided needed support for her and her young child.

Soon after, W2W began contacting other 501(c)(3) agencies and formed partnerships with United Way 211 and Northern Catholic Charities. Today, W2W partners with nearly 90 agencies and has an expanded service area from Greeley/Evans to a larger portion of Weld County.
