The revenue from our delicious food products provides only 70% of our operating budget. The additional 30% of the revenue that bridges the gap between the money we earn and the money we need comes from a diverse and generous group of funders, including foundations, businesses, individuals, churches and clubs. While our gourmet food business provides the context for our training and much of our financial support, we know that the comprehensive support services we offer are integral to the lifetime success of the women we serve.
On-site mentoring, computer literacy classes, individual job coaching and life skills classes are just some of the additional services that Women's Bean Project offers in order to help women begin their journeys toward self-sufficiency. With your generous contribution, we can continue to offer these services to women who come from backgrounds of chronic unemployment or poverty. Those interested can Click Here

Receive a Colorado state tax credit for 25% the value of your gift over $500. The Urban and Rural Enterprise Zones were created by the Colorado State Legislature in 1986 as a tax incentive device. Intended to channel growth into needy areas, stimulate the economy, reward job creation and encourage private investment in business assets located within designated areas, the DUEDC is a corporation set up under the Denver Enterprise Zone Act. Women's Bean Project qualifies for this program by providing job training and job placement services and by operating and promoting business within the Enterprise Zone.
Contributors to the programs within the Denver Urban Enterprise Zone benefit from a tax credit against their Colorado State income tax. For monetary donations, the credit is 25% of the amount given. For in-kind contributions, the credit is 12.5% of the value of the contribution.
Donations to the Women's Bean Project over $500 are eligible for the credit. We will send you the appropriate tax forms with your donation receipt. Gifts are fully tax deductible on both federal and state returns.
