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.
Inspired and guided by our tradition of Tzedakah (righteousness/charity) and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), JewishColumbus’ Women’s Philanthropy is dedicated to the continuity, connectivity and thriving future of our Columbus Jewish community, Israel and the Jewish people around the world.
Women’s Philanthropy is about more than just the Annual Campaign. It’s about deeply knowing and understanding the breadth of issues facing our community and rolling up our sleeves to help. It’s about educating, inspiring and empowering women of all ages in our community. It’s about nurturing leadership and fostering a commitment to philanthropy. It’s about having an impact. Women’s Philanthropy’s four focus pillars aim to meet the needs of our community through engagement, action, and philanthropy.
