Mission

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York imagines a world in which all women and girls in the Jewish community are ensured a healthy and supportive environment…a world in which we all have equal opportunity for economic, religious, social, and political achievement.

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York works to make this world a reality by providing education on vital issues, funding innovative programs, engaging in advocacy efforts, and encouraging our members to view all philanthropic giving through a Jewish and gender lens.
