Vision and Mission
Vision: We strive for a world free of racism, poverty, sexism and other oppressions.
Mission: The Boston Women’s Fund is a progressive foundation that supports community based organizations and grassroots initiatives run by women and girls in order to create a society based on racial, economic and social justice.
The Boston Women’s Fund is recruiting women to join our Allocations Committee. The committee reads and discusses the proposals, conducts site visits, and recommends to the board organizations to get funding.
No prior experience with grantmaking is necessary. Women who are part of the committee have a diverse range of experiences. This added skill can boost your résumé and improve your professional opportunities!
One committee member said of her experience: “Working with women from different cultures, races, backgrounds, and communities was inspiring. To know that at least 12 hours of meetings has a profound impact on women in Boston is exhilarating.” The commitment of committee members is to attend an orientation on Sunday, March 9th, then attend two subsequent all-day meetings, either on Saturdays, April 19 and May 17, or Sundays, April 27 and May 18, plus commit to visiting 2 groups. If you or a woman you know is interested in being part of this year’s allocations process, please contact Amy Leung at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617.725.0035 Ext 3002.
