Women's Philanthropy

Every woman matters here

Looking to connect? Do you want to make the world a better place? Do you feel the need to serve or give back?

You've come to the right place!

You might be a leader in your community, school, or business; or you might be new to Jewish Cincinnati. Whether you know exactly how you want to be involved or are not quite sure how to begin, you are welcome here.

In whatever way you are inspired to support our community—from hands-on volunteering and committee work to leadership positions—we want you to join us. Women’s Philanthropy programs and events are opportunities for all the women in our community, regardless of giving level, to come together and strengthen our community.

We would love to hear YOUR Jewish story. Call us today to hear more about how you can make a difference!

We welcome your involvement in any of our programs. Come join us and meet like-minded women who make a difference in our community. Let us know which programs you are interested in joining!

    The Lion of Judah is a symbol of today’s Jewish woman’s strength, a symbol of her caring about the organized Jewish world and a symbol of her financial commitment of at least $5,000 to the Jewish Federation’s Annual Campaign.
