Women’s Philanthropy

Women’s Philanthropy is a community of women representing diverse lifestyles and income levels.  Women share a personal commitment to supporting the Jewish community locally, in Israel and around the world. Women’s Philanthropy offers a full calendar of educational, social and fundraising events. This passionate community of women has raised more than $5 million annually to help Federation meet its goals.

Our Programs 

Speaker Series
Join us on May 7 for an unbelievable story about Holocaust rescuer Irene Gut Opdyke. Our guest speaker will be Irene's daughter Jeannie Opdyke Smith.
Mitzvah Projects
Just a few hours can make a huge difference. Every year, Women’s Philanthropy plans three hands on Mitzvah programs.
Women’s Philanthropy offers special giving levels, providing you with the opportunity to partner with us even more closely in helping the community.
