BWF Mission & Values

MISSION

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.

WHY WOMEN+ AND GIRLS+?

The Boston Women’s Fund exists solely to support our grantee partners working on systems change and movement building, women+ and girls+ who are solving problems on the front lines of their communities. At BWF, we are who we serve. We know, intellectually and proximately, 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.
