When you give a gift in your own name, you demonstrate the importance tzedakah to you. You take your place in the long line of women who have carried on this fundamental Jewish tradition, and you inspire others to translate their Jewish caring into giving that makes a difference.
Women who give in their own names increase their credibility and power as leaders and policy makers. Women's giving demonstrates that women are knowledgeable philanthropists who understand how to exercise their power to make a difference through giving. It demonstrates women’s dedication to and acceptance of responsibility for the needs of the global Jewish community.
Women's giving is fiscal evidence of the influence women exert as full partners and decision makers in the family, the community, and Jewish People. By giving as individuals, women can stand up and truly be counted.
