Women’s Philanthropy

We build and support Jewish life for today and for generations to come.

Women’s Philanthropy at JEWISHcolorado is comprised of change-makers and community-shapers. We are sisters and daughters, mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers. We are business professionals, young adults, and volunteers. We are compassionate and committed women at every stage of life and career. And with gifts made by women in their own names representing 25% of JEWISHcolorado’s Annual Campaign, we play an important role.

We empower and inspire.

We help meet the needs in our community and support Israel with our dollars and our presence. Inspired and guided by the traditions of tzedakah and tikkun olam, we volunteer together, learn together, and gather together to forge meaningful connections.

90% of women in high income households make the philanthropic decisions.

A gift to JEWISHcolorado in your name will connect you to the Jewish community in a powerful and personal way. It will establish you as a role model to thousands of other women and inspire the next generation to stand up and be counted.

JEWISHcolorado Women’s Philanthropy and Dignity Grows™

Human dignity should not be considered a luxury, yet more than 20% of girls and women in the U.S. suffer from period poverty, lacking the financial resources to purchase basic feminine hygiene necessities.

When we support our sisters, we lift each other up and amazing things happen.

Dignity Grows™ empowers our neighbors in need by providing menstrual and hygiene supplies for every body that needs them. Working with Jewish Family Service of Colorado, Dignity Grows™ organizes, assembles, and distributes free of charge a month’s supply of personal and menstrual hygiene products to girls, women, and individuals assigned female at birth.

Dignity grows—and lives are changed—when girls and women can engage in daily activities without worrying about their periods or their personal hygiene.

To support Dignity Grows™, host a packing party, volunteer, or for more information, contact Jill Katchen at JKatchen@JEWISHcolorado.org.

Dignity Grows™ is an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford and is supported by National Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federations of North America.
