Make a Difference

Women’s Giving

Your gift is your voice. Every gift matters. A gift in your own name will:

  • Connect you to the Jewish community in a personal, powerful way
  • Be a role model to thousands of other women
  • Inspire the next generation to stand up and be counted

Women’s giving accounts for 18% of Federation’s Annual Campaign. By giving a gift in your own name, you embrace an identity that is distinct and independent from that of another family member.

Why Give? Because…

We are individuals. We have the ability to demonstrate our personal commitment to Jewish life by making our own pledge. We are asserting ourselves more in business, the professions, the arts and the voting booth and should not abdicate responsibility in the vital area of philanthropy.

We have a voice. With a growing communal power comes responsibility — increased individual giving complements an increased influence around major communal tables.

Your individual and our collective women’s gifts matter. Almost $6 million dollars from women’s individual gifts play a major role in meeting the needs of Jews locally, in Israel and throughout the world.

We have a choice. We can either hope that someone else will do it OR we can ensure the vitality of world Jewry. Our individual gift decides the vibrancy of the community in which we — and our children and grandchildren — live.

By making a gift in your own name, you play a vital role in creating social justice, aiding the vulnerable, preserving human dignity and building Jewish identity in Detroit and in Jewish communities around the world.
