Boston Women's Fund, we do philanthropy differently. Through equitable grantmaking, public programming, and radical imagination, we're driving lasting change by centering women, girls, and gender-expansive individuals of color from historically excluded communities.
We uplift leaders from BIPOC, elderly, disabled, LGBTQIA+, low-income, immigrant, and refugee communities. We support their life-changing solutions to build power and change systems — most importantly, we let them take the lead.
