Grants of up to $25,000 to Israel nonprofit organizations for programs to promote the economic self-sufficiency of local women. The Foundation seeks to foster social change and support gender-sensitive activities that assist low-income Israeli women in achieving economic independence.
The Foundation is particularly interested in programs that provide cutting-edge approaches to solve problems that have not been addressed previously.
Areas of interest include:
-Savings, Asset Development, and Pension Planning
-Grassroots Programs that provide resources and training
-Legal and Policy Advocacy Initiatives
-Business Development Services that help women who own businesses improve their outreach and marketing
-Leadership development initiatives that increase the number of, and capacity of, women in positions of leadership.
Social change philanthropy focuses on the root causes of problems, working to improve the conditions that lead to inequality. This approach is unlike traditional charity, which often seeks to ameliorate only the symptoms of societal problems—for example, by providing medicine and treatment for the sick, funds for the poor, or shelters for the homeless and battered.
The Hadassah Foundation seeks to promote change by addressing the underlying obstacles that impede the full participation of women and girls in society and by helping women and girls gain the tools they need to help themselves. As part of this mission, the Foundation encourages the active participation of women and girls in the governance of organizations that it supports.
Gender-sensitive programs build on the needs, strengths, perspectives, and experiences of women and girls. They recognize that the needs of females may differ from those of males, and pay deliberate attention to gender as an important component of diversity when creating, implementing, and evaluating programs. Gender-sensitive programs demonstrate an understanding of—and ability to meet—girls’ and women’s needs. Gender-sensitive programs can occur in both gender-specific (girls/women only) and coeducational environments.
