Our Grants

The Foundation supports exciting, meaningful work on behalf of women and girls in our local community and in Israel. Over the last ten years, we’ve funded 46 organizations, locally and in Israel, making over $1,200,000 in grants. We are pleased to note, especially given our economic climate, that every year since 2007 we have increased the amount of our grant giving.

Our Commitment to All Women

Our grants docket reflects the richness and complexity of our mission. We marry our “particularistic” devotion to empowering Jewish women and girls with our “universalistic” desire to reach out to disenfranchised women in our broader local community. In addition to our grants to the Jewish community in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area, we also give grants to Israeli NGOs and to local nonprofits working with low-income immigrant women.
