Thank you to all who helped us meet our  Founding Mother's Challenge! 

As the Women’s Fund turns 20 years old in 2020, we have a lot to celebrate.

Our impact improving the lives of women and girls can be measured in the quality of the initiatives we fund—from promoting educational access to advocating for a living wage. You have been an important part of our success.The Fund is now positioned to broaden its scope.

Guided by the Economic Blueprint for Women, we have listened to the women we serve, we have learned from them about the barriers they face, and together with your help, we will work to dismantle those obstacles in our local community.

This year, we want to do more -- and with your support we can. Our founding mothers have challenged us to raise $50,000 by December 31, and they will match it dollar for dollar.

Economic Blueprint for Women

We work with community partners to develop a regional agenda for women and girls, currently the Economic Blueprint for Women.  The Women's Fund raises money and makes grants to move forward these priorities.  At present, the Women's Fund is predominantly making grants by invitation to organizations moving forward the Blueprint Action Plan priorities.  If you would like to learn more, please email or call (508) 717-0283.
