The Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts fuels progress toward gender equity by funding the most promising solutions, collaborating with results-oriented partners, and by elevating the collective power of local women to take charge, and to lead with purpose.

We envision Western Massachusetts as a national leader for gender equity where people in our communities have the power to prosper economically, live safe and healthy lives, and thrive.


We mobilize the collective resources of our donors to provide support for nonprofits that address the most urgent problems facing western Massachusetts’ women and girls.
