The Lois Webster Fund
Supporting Colorado non-game wildlife research, education, and conservation
It was always Lois’ dream to create this fund and, when in 1995—on her 75th birthday—her friends and family generously donated, the Lois Webster Fund (LWF) was started, giving life to her dream.
To further its impact, each year the LWF relies on the contributions from generous donors to enable researchers to find answers to questions important for conservation; to engage learners of all ages in research; and to educate about Colorado non-game wildlife and helping provide information about techniques for restoring habitats and populations of our beloved Colorado non-game wildlife.
Over the past 27 years, the Lois Webster Fund (LWF) has awarded 60 grants totaling over $131,896 to non-profits, students and teachers associated with higher education and schools, as well as local, state, and federal public land and natural resource agencies. Because grantees are required to partner with like organizations, the LWF grants have impacts far beyond their face value. Apply for a grant or learn more about current and past projects.
