Jewish Women's Foundation of Berkshire County

 

Mission:

In the spirit of tikkun olam, the Jewish Women's Foundation of Berkshire County is dedicated to sharing Jewish values by meeting unmet needs in the community and supporting social action. Foundation members contribute a minimum of $500 to the Foundation each year. 

 

Members are offered the opportunity to serve on an advisory grant committee that decides how the funds are distributed. Past allocations have included support of the Jewish Transportation Network, children's music program, medical treatment transportation, women empowerment and financial literacy programs, Jewish camp scholarships, and more.

 

Volunteer opportunities are also offered each year.
