Women's Impact Initiative Grants

Federation provides a total of $70,000 in Women’s Impact Initiative grants. The aim is to ensure that our local Jewish community is “gender aware” and responsive to the needs and issues of this critical demographic, whose health and wellbeing is vital to the success of our community.
