Tikkun Olam Initiatives: Women’s Philanthropy

Connect. Get Involved. Make a Difference.


As part of the Women’s Philanthropy Connecting Series, we’re bringing together ladies interested in getting hands-on with giving back through our Tikkun Olam Initiatives. Focusing on Food Insecurity, we will volunteer with programs and initiatives that address the needs of those in our community who don’t know where their next meal will come from.
