What We Do

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York’s leading voice and presence raises the consciousness of the Jewish community to the issues affecting women and girls. To achieve change, we provide organizations with funds to help create and sustain social change programs with missions aligned with the goals of the Foundation. In addition to our grantmaking, JWFNY is active in educating the community and advocating for policies that positively impact women and girls at the local and federal level.  JWFNY is uniquely positioned to create long lasting, systemic and impactful change. Members of JWFNY have the opportunity to hone and share their philanthropic voice to affect change in New York, Israel, and around the globe.
