Grant Description

Grants of up to $3,000 to Connecticut nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to benefit women and girls locally or in Israel.

Priority will be given to programs that benefit women in the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven catchment area.

The Jewish Foundation’s Women of Vision Society has been helping women and girls in the Greater New Haven area and Israel for over 20 years. This endowment, created by 100 founding members in the community, has tackled issues from domestic violence and health to acculturation and spirituality. The endowment has more than doubled its membership and giving since its creation. Since its inception, Women of Vision has disbursed funds to help seed and sustain critical programming and services for women and girls. 


  1. Enhance the quality of life for Jewish women and their families to ensure Jewish continuity.
  2. Build bridges among Jewish women of all traditions in order to foster a robust Jewish community.
  3. Encourage collaboration between Jewish organizations in order to maximize use of resources.
  4. Reach out to unaffiliated Jewish women to cultivate a connection with the Greater New Haven Jewish community.
  5. Support community programs that nurture and advance Jewish values, including Tikkun Olam.
