Empowering Women to Succeed
The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New Jersey (JWF) transforms the lives of individual women and girls through hands-on philanthropy and collective grant making. Through our giving, we invite women to be agents for change and to positively impact the lives of women and girls in New Jersey and beyond.
Since 2007, JWF grants and special initiatives have raised awareness of pressing issues and made a sustainable difference in women’s and girl’s lives here in our community, across New Jersey, nationally, and around the world.
Membership dues create a funding pool from which members make innovative and evidence-based grants to qualified non-profit organizations, Jewish or secular, each year. Recent funding cycles have addressed violence against women, supportive services for developmentally challenged women and girls, and healthcare for vulnerable women.
