Women’s Alliance Endowment Fund

Women’s Alliance Endowment Fund

Established in 1993, the Women’s Alliance Endowment Fund (WAEF) benefits Jewish women and girls by supporting educational, health, cultural, and social services and programs worldwide.

As of June 2018, the fund was worth over $175,000 and growing.  A contribution of $1,000 paid over up to 4 years names you a member of the WAEF. Membership to the fund allows you to directly impact women and girls locally and around the world by participating in an annual meeting that selects programs to support. To date, the WAEF has 131 members.
