Women’s Philanthropy is a community of women representing diverse lifestyles and income levels. Women share a personal commitment to supporting the Jewish community locally, in Israel and around the world.
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.
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.
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.
Women who give a dollar a day to the Annual Campaign, up to $1,799 annually, make our Sabra Society. The Sabra is a symbol of the native Israeli – tough on the outside and sweet on the inside. The Sabra endures and continues to thrive, just as we do and our community does.
