Women's Philanthropy

Woman to Woman  - Annually, Women’s Philanthropy outreach programs o bring women from all over our  community together. Among the outstanding outreach programs is our bi-annual “Extraordinary Women,”  a showcase of 13 successful women who shared their secrets of success. In 2013-14, outreach programs include a semi-monthly lunch and dinner program, “Let’s Do Coffee,” and our Women’s Philanthropy Annual Welcome.

Campaign - Working with local, national and international agencies we are able to transform lives and deliver hope, dignity and comfort to millions of people at home, in Israel and around the world. The money raised is used to help pay for services for the elderly, disabled, families in crisis and children in need, Jewish education and programs to strengthen Jewish communities with dignity and comfort. Many women volunteer their time to call others in the Jewish community and ask them to donate to the Federation Community Campaign.  Women’s Philanthropy Campaign welcomes every gift – there is no gift too small to make a difference.

The Women's Campaign is comprised of these divisions:
Hatikvah -   $1 to $999
Menorah -  $1,000 to $1,799
Pomegranate -  $1800 to $4,999
Lion of Judah - $5,000 +

Campaign Endowment - Women can perpetuate their support of the community beyond their lifetime by establishing a campaign endowment. This ensures that whatever programs and services are needed as the community changes through the years, funding will be available through the Annual Federation/UJA Campaign. Endowments can be made several ways including a bequest in one's will or through a life insurance policy. A Federation Legacy Gift can be left in any amount. A LOJE (Lion of Judah Endowment) perpetuates a Lion of Judah gift.
We invite you to join the hundreds of wonderful women involved in building a strong Jewish community through Women's Philanthropy.
