The Jewish Women’s Philanthropy Circle of Arizona (JWPC-AZ) is a group of diverse women who are committed to upholding the tradition of tzedakah. In the spirit of the strong and compassionate Jewish women who have come before us, we are on a quest to empower organizations that are doing good work throughout the Valley.

We are a network of women: we are mothers, wives, sisters and friends. We are leaders, innovators, adventurers and dreamers. We are empowered, inspired, ambitious and intelligent. We are Jews—reform, conservative and orthodox—who share in the love of community and the mitzvah of tzedakah.

It is our mission to allocate strategic financial support to organizations that share our core values of integrity, leadership and tradition. Grants shall provide entree to education, spiritual growth, and innovation, and open doors for those who may have limited access to opportunity.

Together we are reinforcing the truism that no funder, no matter how large or influential, can build a community alone.

Finalists will be notified the week of Feb. 20 and will be required to meet with and present to JWPC-AZ on the evening of March 2.
