The mission of the Women’s Fund at the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts is to advance the educational attainment and economic security of women and girls in Southeastern MA. Organized by a committed “Tiara Team” of volunteers, the Women’s Fund Tiara 5K began 12 years ago to offer women and their families the opportunity to engage in a philanthropic, family friendly, Mother’s Day activity on a day that celebrates women and motherhood. Revenue from the Tiara 5K will support all Women’s Fund activities.
