Women’s Philanthropy offers a full calendar of educational, social and fundraising events. This passionate community of women raises more than $1 million annually to help Federation meet its goals.  


We invite you to join us at our events, in our volunteer activities and in making a real difference in Greater New Haven.

Ways To Give

Lion of Judah

With a gift of $5,000 or more to the Annual Campaign, a woman earns the distinction of the Lion of Judah. The Lion of Judah pin is worn by 15,000 women in the world and symbolizes their dedication to the Jewish community.


Pomengranate Society

The Pomegranate honors all women who make a personal gift of $1,800-$4,999 to the Annual Campaign. These women can show their commitment by wearing a sterling silver Pomegranate pin, representing a commitment to saving lives and to helping Jews in need around the world.



Nearly one in five children in Connecticut are food insecure and do not get enough food outside of the free meal programs provided by public schools. Women’s Philanthropy and Jewish Family Service organize volunteers and collect donations to feed hungry children every weekend during the school year. More on Food4Kids
