Grantmaking for Social Change

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of Metropolitan Detroit advances social change by expanding opportunities for Jewish women, their families and community. The Foundation empowers its Trustees as advocates, leaders and philanthropists.

Become a Trustee

In 1999, the Jewish Women’s Foundation began with three simple words: imagine the possibilities. We imagined what we could accomplish if we combined our philanthropic dollars, empowering us to help Jewish women and girls of today and those future generations. The possibilities are limitless.
