CWE Receives $5,000 from Cambridge Community Foundation
December 12, 2021—
The Center for Women and Enterprise was awarded $5,000 from the Cambridge Community Foundation to provide ongoing support to women entrepreneurs in Cambridge, Massachusetts, many of whom are still struggling against the economic impact of COVID-19.
CWE is among 66 community-based nonprofits to receive funds. These include longstanding nonprofit partners that the Foundation has supported for 25, 50, even 100 years as well as new partners addressing timely needs in Cambridge.
“Pandemic recovery remains out of reach for too many of our residents and families and as they continue to struggle meeting basic needs, we must continue to support the essential nonprofits, big and small, that directly assist those who live in and rely on Cambridge,” said Geeta Pradhan, Cambridge Community Foundation’s president. “Nonprofits are the glue that hold our community together and we are thankful for their dedication to Cambridge.”
