Women’s Philanthropy


Women's Philanthropy is a creative force for connecting Jewish women through community outreach and resource development. Through our work on behalf of the Federation Annual Campaign, women take a leading role in raising funds to meet the needs of Jews locally, in Israel, and around the world.


Women raise well over $1 million annually from their peers in Rochester's Jewish community!

Who We Are


We are women aged 20 to 120 who are partners in tikkun olam, the repair of the world.  We gather together to respond to the needs of our community, both locally and abroad, through fundraising, volunteering and education.


Women's Philanthropy is representative and inclusive.
