Executive Director, Boston Women’s Fund (BWF)
Boston Women’s Fund (BWF), a progressive foundation that supports community-based, grassroots initiatives run by womxn and girls in order to create a society based on racial, economic and social
justice, is seeking a new Executive Director. This is an exciting opportunity to help make a significant and lasting positive impact on the lives of womxn and girls in the Greater Boston area. The Board is seeking a dynamic, mission-driven leader with exceptional relationship-building and management skills and an expansive vision for the role BWF can play in supporting programs to help womxn and girls to develop the skills and confidence to organize, educate and lead in their communities.
Founded in 1984 by a diverse group of womxn, BWF was the first womxn’s philanthropy in Massachusetts with a focus of supporting grassroots womxn’s organizations. It is unique both in its
creation, development, priorities and the place it fills within the philanthropic landscape of Greater Boston. BWF has been a trailblazer and role model in embracing participatory grantmaking as its modus operandi. During its 36 years, BWF has awarded grants to more than 340 organizations with an investment of nearly $6.5M using participatory- and trust-based grantmaking methods. Diversity and inclusion are critical core values of BWF and an integral part of all its endeavors, including staffing, fundraising, and, especially, grant making.
The next Director must exhibit exceptional communication skills and the ability to serve as the Fund’s lead spokesperson and ambassador. Key to their success will be the ability to build relationships needed to elevate and grow the Fund’s impact, working with BWF’s Board of Directors. They will bring an inclusive leadership style, inspiring and developing a small staff to build BWF’s capacity and capabilities in support of its important mission.
