WAEF seeks members who want to make a difference in the world



Over the last 30 years, the Women’s Alliance Endowment Fund of the Jewish Federation Foundation of Greater Rhode Island has distributed nearly $135,000 in grants for critical programs and services for women and children in greater Rhode Island and around the world.

WAEF members thoroughly review all grant applications to determine where to allocate funding. Funds have been distributed to schools, congregations, social-service agencies, medical facilities and other organizations for programs such as education, engagement for at-risk children and professional development.

Now, WAEF is seeking to expand its membership by connecting new people with its mission. What do you care about? What can make a difference in your own life while also impacting others? It’s possible your membership and engagement in the Women’s Alliance Endowment Fund is the right entry point to make a difference.

WAEF raises much of its funds from members. A $1,000 one-time gift to the fund makes the donor a lifetime WAEF member and gives her the opportunity to participate in the annual grant discussions. Additionally, some WAEF members generously renew their membership every few years, or make contributions to the fund in honor of or in memory of loved ones.

Gifts of any amount allow WAEF to provide more support each year!
