About Women's Philanthropy


Welcome to the world that Jewish Women build together...

Women's Philanthropy provides a place in the Portland Jewish community for all women to come together to promote, enhance and celebrate Jewish life. We are committed to building a Jewish community that is welcoming, engaging and demonstrates the impact a woman makes by having her voice heard.


By perpetuating the ideals and values of Jewish heritage and tradition, and by providing opportunities through programming and leadership development, we strive to have all women more deeply understand the significance of their philanthropic decisions. Women’s Philanthropy of the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland invites you to get connected.


Our Director of Women's Philanthropy, Wendy Kahn, would love to hear from you by email or at 503-892-3015.
