GRANTS 
AWARDED BY JEWISH WOMEN’S FOUNDATION OF SOUTH PALM BEACH COUNTY

Through thorough review and effective collaboration, JWF funds programs and projects that work to improve the status of Jewish women and children. Most significantly, these programs proactively address the source of the varied challenges these groups face. We have funded important educational initiatives for teenage girls in South Palm Beach County, deepening their knowledge of Judaism and Jewish culture while helping them integrate Jewish values into their lives. In Israel, we have helped abused girls break the cycle of domestic violence and we supported a training program giving immigrant Ethiopian women the opportunity to enter the workforce and support their families.
