Impact Investing




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.

Why an intermediary?

We believe in the power of transformative relationships. Individuals shape relationships, relationships shape communities, and communities shape society.


And, when people like you come together with organizations like us, our leaders are able to share their stories through the community.

And that’s where the magic begins.

We prioritize groups that are persistently excluded and fund leaders who are from the communities that they serve, supporting organizations that need it most.


We do the legwork and due diligence of finding small, local grassroots organizations to support. Through our relationships with grassroots leaders, we have a unique proximity to historically excluded communities. 


We find new organizations that are uniquely solving some of our communities most pressing issues. Your money will go to organizations that aren’t yet on your radar. 

Name something everyone can get behind. We'll wait.

Actually, we can't wait long — not when only 0.5% of philanthropic funding goes specifically to women and girls of color. The good news? Our Impact Investors aren’t wasting any time. They continue to prove that if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that equality is a basic human right.

Here's where you come in


When you invest with Boston Women’s Fund, you get to be front-and-center to these events and more.

Getting Proximate Conversation Series

To deepen our understanding of the biggest issues impacting persistently excluded communities, we bring in the experts — grassroots community leaders with relevant lived-experience. Together in these virtual conversations, we learn how we can become stronger allies and better support individuals impacted by systems of oppression.

40th Anniversary Event-Next Stop: Liberation

We’re taking a moment to reflect and honor our past 40 years as we forge into our future. For the first time in a long time, we’ll bring our diverse community together and will host our largest fundraiser to raise essential support for our mission. 

Further Marketing Engagement

With Impact Investing, you’ll receive curated marketing exposure for your company logo/family name, backstage passes, and exclusive invitations to programs and events. You’ll also receive VIP treatment at our major annual events.

“Boston Women’s Fund’s innovative approach to philanthropy enables them to respond to community need with a nimbleness and speed that we value. They’re taking innovative approaches with their grantmaking process and challenging the status quo to drive equity for the individuals who need it most."

— Jim Canales (he/him), President and Trustee,
Barr Foundation
