WHY A WOMAN'S GIFT

Women who give in their own names increase their power as leaders and changemakers. Women are more likely to inspire multi-generational and collective giving, and often feel a strong connection with the causes they support.

When a woman gives charitably, she is exercising her influence as a decision maker within her community. Studies show that women drive the charitable decisions within their families, using their skills and connections to advance causes within their communities.

So, why a woman’s gift? Because women are knowledgeable philanthropists, who understand how to make a difference through giving. It’s a wonderful tool to demonstrate their dedication to the needs of the global Jewish community.

UJA's Annual Campaign raises approximately $60 million each year, of which more than $13 million comes from women. The extent of this impact is extraordinary, as a gift to UJA strengthens our network of more than 100 organizations that cover the following areas:

Fighting poverty

Countering antisemitism and improving community security

Growing Jewish education

Strengthening Jewish identity

Supporting Israel and global Jewish communities in need

While these pillars will always be of utmost importance, UJA’s campaign this year is focused on helping those hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic through our Emergency Campaign for Community Resilience. To learn more about the work we’re doing, please visit our website.
