Addressing the Invitations: Are Jewish Women on the List?
Although women hold 50% of the wealth in the United States, they form a much lower percentage of the donor pool of Jewish philanthropy. Some women have made an impact by giving to organizations for women and girls and other groups generally not funded by men and foundations directed by men. However, many more women have yet to give to Jewish causes at all, mostly because they have never been asked.The authors issue a call for women donors to be solicited en masse in order to strengthen the power of Jewish women's philanthropy. Whether through coordinated small gifts or large investments ("moving millions"), women can have a significant impact on Jewish philanthropy if given the proper invitation.
