Welcome New Women of Vision

The Women of Vision Society was created in 1996 by area Jewish women eager to join together to enhance and improve the lives of fellow women and girls in our community.

The Women of Vision Society is a permanent, restricted endowment with the goal to make philanthropy accessible to all women in our area through a manageable one-time gift given in perpetuity. The result has been tremendous. The Society now has over 200 members. Since its founding, Women of Vision has distributed $180,000 in grant money to organizations across our community and addressed issues from literacy and acculturation to health and domestic violence. Organizations that have benefitted from the endowment include, Jewish Family Service, Jewish Coalition for Literacy, Ezra Academy, Jewish Women’s Circle, Food4Kids, Tower One/Tower East, local synagogues, organizations in Israel, and many others.
