Women's Philanthropy: Leading Community and Inspiring Change

Who We Are

Women philanthropists are the change-makers and community-shapers of the world. We are sisters and daughters, mothers and friends, compassionate and committed women at every stage of life and career. Federation's Women’s Philanthropy engages Jewish women in the fulfilling work of making the world a better place. In every community, we are building and supporting Jewish life for today and for generations to come.


Women in Action

Through our donations and our hands-on community service, we fight domestic violence, improve women’s health and nutrition, provide shelter to vulnerable children, protect at-risk seniors and so much more. During the COVID crisis, we've helped meet increased needs in our communities. We support Israel with our dollars and our presence. Federation inspires and empowers women to become leaders and decision-makers. Our collective philanthropy enriches our own lives while improving the lives of others. There’s more happening in your community. Discover it now!

Lion of Judah

The Lions of Judah is a giving society for women who donate at least $5,000 to their Federation's annual campaign. These women are among the most dynamic philanthropic Jewish women in the world, deeply involved at the local, national and international level. They also have the opportunity to endow their gift to ensure flourishing Jewish life for generations to come.
