Community Building

The Metrowest Women's Fund invests in women and girls through community building. We have big goals – matching the resources in our community with those in need. Only 1.9% of all philanthropic giving is dedicated to issues of women and girls. Metrowest women and girls need us to come together and invest in the community.  Join us as we build strategic partnerships and a community of donors.

No gift is too small - or too big!*

"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured

by the compassionate actions of its members."

Education

The Metrowest Women's Fund invests in women and girls through education. Our mission includes educating the community about the critical and significant needs of women and girls. We do this by convening front-line providers who support women and girls in the Metrowest and building an educated community of donors who understand the needs and impact of their gifts. Focus areas include Educational Opportunity, Girls: Our Next Generation, and Safety from Violence.

Helping Hands
"The Metrowest Women's Fund mission resonates with me because it strives to educate us about the needs of women and girls within a few miles of where I live and find resources to meet those needs. You don't need to travel far to make a huge impact on the lives of women and girls that will dramatically transform their future. Reading the testimonials from grant recipients inspires me to increase our donor base to allow for more women and girls to get the resources they need. I am very excited to spread the important work to our greater community and raise awareness of the needs of women and girls that we serve.”
