MMA congratulates its partner, Meredith Kaplan Stoma, who takes over as Senior Chair of the Jewish Women’s Foundation of New Jersey (JWF).
The JWF recently voted to award three grants in New Jersey and one grant in Israel for 2014. This year’s awards totaled $67,500, representing the JWF’s largest financial commitment to improving the lives of women and girls since its founding more than eight years ago. The JWF educates women about the power of philanthropy by pooling funds and collaboratively and strategically awarding grants to address areas of need and importance to all women and girls. By highlighting what have been considered “women’s issues” – such as domestic violence; employment concerns; work/life balance; self-esteem; and education – and moving them to the main stage, JWF members empower women and girls while improving the quality of life for all.
