The Women’s Fund of Essex County is a community of women, families and businesses dedicated to creating social change for women and girls in need or at risk.  Our vision is to empower all women and girls to meet their full potential.

We raise funds and make grants to targeted nonprofit programs in Essex County that are changing the lives of women and girls in significant and sustainable ways.  In addition, we work to raise awareness of the needs and issues impacting local women and girls, and of the power of women's philanthropy to help change our community and world.

We focus on Essex County because we believe that the most sustainable change begins locally.
