Jewish Women’s Foundation Of NJ Awards $200,000 Through Large Grants Cycle and Emergency Pandemic Support

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New Jersey (JWFNJ), a donor-advised fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ, has awarded $160,000 in competitive grants to six local nonprofit organizations that are working to transform the lives of women and girls, especially during these times of distress.

In addition, JWFNJ donated $40,000 in one-time emergency dollars in unsolicited grants to organizations responding to the COVID-19 crisis.

Since its formation in 2007, JWFNJ has awarded grants to approximately 78 organizations in New Jersey and Israel, totaling more than $1.1 million.

Cheryl Rosario, the foundation’s director, said, “JWF has a long history of supporting organizations that benefit issues like women’s health, housing stability and food insecurity. This year, supporting projects that seek to address racial disparities and communities impacted by the pandemic are more important than ever.”
