Women’s Philanthropy: Inspiring Innovation and Impact

Women are making a difference like never before. Women’s Philanthropy brings women and ideas together in shared purpose. You use your philanthropy to articulate your values and how you want to strengthen Jewish life.

We are using our collective strength to address issues central to our families and communities. As philanthropists, we are the visionaries and innovators shaping the word around us. We are role models to our children and other women, inspiring them to see the impact that philanthropy has in our community.

We welcome you to Federation’s Women’s Philanthropy. There’s a place for you here, no matter where life and career have taken you. Add your voice to this amazing community of women. Our collective philanthropy is purposeful and effective.

“Thanks to Women’s Philanthropy, I am now a part of a community of modern, civic-minded Jewish women – I am grateful to be in such a dynamic group, and to be having important conversations about 21st century Jewish life and meaningful giving.”

– Cheryl Isaac

Women with Holocaust survivor.
