Allocations Committee

Grants from BWF amplify the voices of women and girls who work tirelessly to create a just society free of racism and inequality. At BWF, we recognize that change begins in the community, frequently led by the efforts of inspirational women and girls who know the solutions to their problems yet lack the resources to solve them. Decisions made by the Allocations Committee provide critical resources to women and girl leaders in grassroots organizations. Learn more.

Development Committee

BWF raises money to fund grassroots organizations making change in their communities and to develop programs that support the needs of marginalized women and girls in the Boston area. The Development Committee is responsible for ensuring that BWF meets its fundraising goals that allow us to fulfill our mission and to ensure the long-term stability of the organization. The Committee will make recommendations to the Board when needed about making adjustments to the strategic Development Plan. Learn more.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee assists the Board in overseeing the financial wellbeing of the organization. The Committee meets periodically to review financial statements and to monitor deposits, expenditures, and available cash. The Committee also assists in the preparation of the annual budget and presents the budget to the Board for approval. Additionally, the Committee monitors internal management controls and assists the auditor and accountant in conducting the annual audit. Learn more.
