Financial Statements & Activity Reports


The goal of WES' Board of Managers is to provide WES Scholars with no less than 10 percent of the total cost of Colorado College attendance. WES may increase the amount of funds for each scholar if members increase the level of their membership, make bequests, and make other contributions for scholarships. It is the hope of the entire Board of Managers that through members' generosity, WES will be able to raise the level of financial support provided to WES Scholars.

The Woman's Educational Society endowment, valued at $6,693,126 as of May 31, 2023, provides scholarships for 21 Colorado College students. The endowment is managed by John W. Bristol and Co., Inc. The Finance Committee meets occasionally with them to discuss the performance and management of the endowment.
