Women’s Impact Initiative Grants
Each year, Federation awards grants to local organizations that inspire and empower Jewish women and girls through programs that focus on social, economic, religious and political equality. Our past recipients include initiatives that promote breast cancer awareness, address sexual assaults on local college campuses, encourage civic engagement and foster positive self-images among elementary-aged girls.
