Women’s Philanthropy empowers an individual woman to make a gift in her own name, and represents the fastest growing segment of donors, with contributions comprising approximately one-third of all contributions to the Tampa JCC & Federation’s Annual Campaign. Participation at any level is always appreciated and signifies a woman’s understanding of the essence of being Jewish and the importance of being involved in Federation.
Please consider being a part of any of the following giving circles:
A meaningful gift of $1,000 in one’s own name to the annual campaign is the start into Women’s Philanthropy and everything we have to offer. Being a part of Women’s Philanthropy is an affirmation of the power of a woman’s connection to her family, her community and Jewish people around the world.
