The Hadassah Foundation
The Foundation is an investor in social change for girls and women. It supports projects in the United States and Israel that work to improve the status, health, and well-being of women and girls; those that bring women’s and girls’ contributions, issues, and needs from the margins to the center of Jewish concern; and those that encourage and facilitate their active participation in decision-making and leadership in all spheres of life. Grants are awarded for gender-sensitive, social change projects that develop the leadership skills and capabilities of adolescent girls and young women in the Jewish community and for the creation and/or expansion of gender-sensitive curricula and training programs that foster the leadership skills and capabilities of Jewish girls and young women. Preference will be given to curricula and training programs that have the capacity to provide training on a regional and/or national basis. Additional information including how the Foundation defines “gender sensitive” can be found on the Web site.
