The Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts offers funding to organizations and programs that benefit women and girls in the four counties of western Massachusetts. We support diverse programs and projects that not only directly impact individual participants, but we also support efforts that address the broader social issues affecting women and girls, including advocacy and efforts to change systems and policies.

“It is very inspiring and exciting to know that the Women's Fund really cares about MotherWoman and its success. I appreciate your sitting down and talking with us about the grant application process and potential collaborators around issues of maternal depression and mothers' economic empowerment.”
