The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York (JWFNY) is accepting concept letters from organizations that promote leadership advancement among women in girls in New York. Organizations with a national focus may apply, as long as a portion of the programming is focused in New York. We are interested in partnering with organizations that are inspired by Jewish values, encourage gender diversity in leadership, and promote women’s involvement in areas in which they are underrepresented.

Grants are offered for unrestricted support (including capacity building and general operating support) and program support. Unrestricted support is designated for organizations that are inspired by Jewish values, utilize a gender lens in all aspects of their work, aim to create social change, and promote leadership advancement of women and girls. Grants are awarded for new or existing programs that meet these criteria. Applicants are invited to apply for two year grants for up to $80,000 paid over two years.
