BWF Mission & Values

BWF envisions a world where power, opportunity, and access are not limited by gender. We work to achieve this by advocating for and investing in grassroots organizations and community solutions led by women+ and girls+* to advance racial, economic, social, and gender justice in Greater Boston and beyond.


*Women+ and girls+ refers to women and girls, including transwomen, as well as those who identify as femme, nonbinary and/or genderfluid.

The Boston Women’s Fund exists solely to support our grantee partners: women+ and girls+ working on systems change, movement building, and solving problems on the front lines of their communities. At BWF, we are who we serve. We know that organizations supporting women+ and girls+ receive just *1.6% of all national philanthropic funding. In short, philanthropic redlining persists in our most vulnerable communities.
