The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New Jersey (JWF-NJ), a giving circle of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ, recently awarded $117,000 to five local nonprofit organizations that are working to positively impact women and girls. Since its formation in 2007, JWF-NJ has awarded grants to more than 85 organizations, totaling more than $1.4 million.
Pam Greenwood, the foundation’s director, said, “Less than 2% of all U.S. philanthropic funding goes to support women and girls. The members of JWF-NJ hope to address this crying need, transforming the lives of women and girls in Northern-Central New Jersey by funding these important programs.”

JWF-NJ will award five $5,000 Impact grants to local nonprofits this coming November.
