 The Jewish Women's Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches

The Jewish Women's Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches (JWF) is a social change advocacy and grantmaking organization to empower women and girls. JWF fosters women's leadership and gives voice to women and girls who are voiceless and powerless through grants, education and advocacy. Because women and girls continue to face social, economic and political barriers and less than 7% of all philanthropic dollars raised are allocated to issues specifically affecting women and girls, JWF offers donors an opportunity to develop an informed philanthropic response to gender inequities. JWF provides young leadership development programming and cutting-edge public education focused on gender issues. JWF has given over $1.6 million in strategically invested grants worldwide and will give away another $350,000 in social change grants in 2016.


Florida Philanthropic Network is a statewide association of grantmakers working to strengthen philanthropy through research, education and public policy.
