Women's Impact Initiative Grants

The Women’s Impact Initiative provides grants to local nonprofits from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Annual Campaign to organizations in Miami that inspire and empower Jewish self-identifying women and girls and improve our local community through programs that achieve social, economic, religious and political equality.

Federation provides a total of $50,000 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.
