Women's Philanthropy

 

Why a Woman's Gift?

Because you care. Because you want to make a difference. Because a woman’s gift is a gift from the heart.

 

From generation to generation, Judaism has emphasized tzedakah, (justice, often embodied in acts of charity), not as a choice, but as a responsibility. Our Women’s Philanthropy fundraising efforts make it possible for each of us as individuals to step forward and do our part. Together, we can do so much to respond to the urgent needs of those who cannot provide for themselves.

 

As women continue to join men in courtrooms, board rooms and operating rooms, we can also join them in assuming equal responsibility for saving, sustaining and enriching Jewish lives. We all share pride in our community's strong communal fundraising efforts which provides financial resources to our agencies.

 

When we make a financial commitment to the Greensboro Jewish Federation in our own name, we serve as role models. We are counted. And, we are stronger as a community.

Women's Philanthropy Cabinet

 

The Greensboro Jewish Federation Women's Philanthropy offers women the opportunity to connect to other like-minded women in our community. Woman's Philanthropy Cabinet (WPC) is open to any woman who makes a gift to the annual campaign of the Greensboro Jewish Federation of $365 or more. WPC operates as a vital resource by educating, inspiring and celebrating Jewish women though speakers, workshops, and programming. WPC helps develop Jewish leaders dedicated to the Federation mission and serves to offer continuity and connectivity to Jewish women of this and future generations. It increases support for and raises awareness about the needs in the Jewish community in Greensboro, around the state, in the country and throughout the world.

The Women's Philanthropy Cabinet invites all women to become involved and to be a part of a caring community of vibrant, active women who enjoy giving back. Your gift makes a difference and changes the lives of others for the better. In addition to supporting beneficiaries of the Federation, your gift to WPC entitles you to attend educational, social, and leadership development programs.

 

According to former Women’s Philanthropy President, Erin Rosen, “Being involved in the Women's Philanthropy Cabinet offers the opportunity for women to give back in a meaningful way because every woman can make a difference."

 

Please consider joining at the Woman's Philanthropy Cabinet level to enjoy a year of guest speakers, luncheons, classes, and other exciting programs. For more information, contact Emily Gray or call 336-852-5433 ext 237.
