Our future leaders...

The Women's Fund of Western Massachusetts is a public foundation that invests in the lives and talents of women and girls.

We've invested $2.5 million in grant awards to the efforts of over 150 local organizations. The Women's Fund commits to 3 years of funding to grantees in each of the four western counties. These multi-year grants are key to helping deploy innovative programs that positively shift the landscape within our focus areas of educational access and success, economic justice, and safety and freedom from violence.

In addition to the financial award, the Women’s Fund invests an additional $12,000 into our partnerships by giving each grantee organization the opportunity to select two of their staff, constituents, or board members as participants of the Women’s Fund’s Leadership Institute for Political and Public Impact (LIPPI).

LIPPI is a year-long program that enhances a woman's natural capacity to lead by connecting her with the tools, confidence, and networks to become a civic leader. Each year, the Women's Fund trains a diverse cohort of about 45 participants in community organizing, policy-making, fundraising, campaign management, running for office, and board participation. To date, 200 women have graduated from this training and have stepped into public and policy leadership roles. The LIPPI network includes an expanding group of business professionals, opinion makers, academics, and politicians.

The Women's Fund also convenes other excellent women’s programs in the counties, and produces original research including the first ever report on the status of western Massachusetts women. Collectively, we are moved by the simple truth that when we invest in the lives of women and girls, we are investing in the economic success and safety for all.
