The Jewish Women’s Foundation was established in the summer of 2000 and is the first foundation in Western Pennsylvania created specifically to address the needs of women and girls in both the Jewish and general communities.  JWF supports organizations that improve the lives of women and girls, with a focus on social change, and funds projects that are catalysts for creating innovative initiatives that support their unique needs.  At least 50% of JWF funds each year are invested into the Jewish community.

JWF offers donors the opportunity to participate in the direction and distribution of their personal philanthropy and provides the opportunity for women to use their leadership, financial resources and volunteer time to make a difference in the lives of women and girls. Trustees enjoy the connection to like-minded women, seeing the direct impact of their investment and gaining a deeper knowledge of community needs. JWF leverages the shared passion and investment of its Trustees to positively impact women and girls in our community through active and collective philanthropy. 

JWF core values include: participation, empowerment, innovative thinking,
collaboration and creating positive change.
