It doesn’t take a lot of money to be a philanthropist and to try to change the world. – Rosalee Davison zt”l, Lifetime Member since 2003
JWGF is a giving circle that empowers women as funders, decision makers and agents of change. Each of us contributes the same amount to our fund and each has an equal voice in directing our grant making. The giving circle model multiplies our individual actions, creating tremendous collective impact. Your $1,000 gift could become $100,000 or more. Over the years, we have distributed more than $2 million in grants to nonprofits that help women and girls of all faiths and backgrounds live safer, healthier and more meaningful lives.
Since our inception, we have given through both a Jewish and gender lens and our work has honored the tradition of tzedekah (philanthropic giving) and tikkun olam (improving the world). These Jewish values provide the foundation for our work.
