At the Women’s Fund, we are passionate about improving the quality of life for women and girls in our region. Women in Southeastern MA, like women and girls everywhere, deserve equal opportunities in the workplace, in the classroom and in their communities. We envision a level playing field and take a proactive stance to bring this about.
We raise money for and awareness about what women and girls most need to succeed in our region. Any request the Women’s Fund makes of a donor, any event we plan or grant we offer to a community agency is done in the spirit of our core values and measured for its relevance to our mission. We strive to inspire and nurture these values in our donors, volunteers, grantees and the community as a whole.
