Support Our Mission by Giving to the 2019 Fall Appeal 

The Women's Fund advances economic security for women and girls in Southeastern MA. We build partnerships and use our voice, advocacy, and grant-making to promote equity across race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender identity and country of origin. 


The Women’s Fund of Southeastern Massachusetts developed the Economic Blueprint to tackle goals relating to key issues in our region including: 

  • Increase access to quality early education and childcare 

  • Build equity in employment and benefits 

  • Living wage-focused education and training 

  • Assure health, safety & well-being 

  • Strengthen public safety nets & stepping stones

  • Increase women's civic and political leadership 


Your support of our Fall Appeal will fund initiatives outlined above that support women and girls' safety and equity in the workplace, education and training, civic engagement, and leadership. Join in! Volunteer and donate today.

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.
