BWF Mission & Vision

Boston Women's Fund uplifts, advocates for, and invests in women, girls, and gender-expansive individuals who are leading grassroots organizations and systems’ change. Together we strive toward racial, economic, social, and gender justice.


We envision a world where power, opportunity, and access exist for those persistently marginalized, regardless of gender identity or gender expression.

At BWF, we are who we serve. So we know firsthand that philanthropic redlining continues to skew the playing field. Organizations supporting women, girls, and gender-expansive people receive just 1.9% of all national charitable donations. However, we believe that change begins with women, girls, and gender-expansive individuals in their own communities. They can and must be leaders in all movements if progressive change is to occur. That’s why we exist solely to support these leaders as they solve problems on the front lines of their communities and work toward systems change.
