Guided by our traditions of tzedakah (righteousness/charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world), Women's Philanthropy is dedicated to the continuity, connectivity, and the thriving future of the Jewish community, here in Kansas City and around the world.


Women’s Philanthropy is a diverse group of compassionate and dedicated women connected by our Jewish values and traditions. We are the leaders, influencers, and advocates working to make a positive impact in our community. We are the volunteers and board members committed to Jewish Federation’s mission to sustain and enhance Jewish life.


As generous donors and philanthropists, we understand that giving creates real and lasting change. In fact, more than 25 percent of Jewish Federation’s Community Campaign is raised by women each year. The future of the Jewish community is inextricably linked to the power of Women’s Philanthropy. We invite you to be a part of it by getting involved through Lion of Judah, the Women of Impact Giving Circle, or one of our other fantastic programs.

WP Connect

A fun social and networking opportunity that brings together Jewish women. Previous WP Connect events have included self-defense classes, spa nights, pottery, painting, and more. Events and schedules will be posted when available.

Pearl Society

The Pearl Society recognizes women who give from the heart. When you give a gift of $180 or more to Jewish Federation’s Community Campaign, you share a bond with women in Kansas City – and across North America – who are committed to the welfare and continuity of Jewish people locally, in Israel, and around the world.
