Colorado C3E was selected by the Mighty Arrow Family Foundation to receive a general operating grant in the spring of 2020. Foundation grants are awarded by invitation only, so it’s an honor that the Foundation took note of our work and a privilege that we were selected to receive funding.

“We saw value in the mentor-mentee program She’s In Power was implementing,” explained Jordana Barrack, executive director of the Foundation. “The ability to help younger women find positive role models in the clean energy sector truly is powerful. We are excited to help others find inspiration in the work that will define our futures.”

The grant awarded to Colorado C3E is a 3-year funding commitment dedicated to helping the She’s in Power program launch and expand its reach. The objectives of She’s in Power align well with the Foundation’s interests in supporting innovative climate action solutions, helping communities become more climate change resilient and transitioning to a clean energy economy. The size of Colorado C3E is also a good fit for the Foundation’s mission-aligned philanthropy.

“When we find small organizations that are doing important work in our community and can build a relationship with them, we can really help move the needle,” said Barrack.

Colorado C3E is putting the Mighty Arrow Family Foundation grant to immediate use by hiring a dedicated She’s in Power program manager. We are thrilled to welcome Diane Ernst to the team and broaden the impact of She’s in Power.
