We are thrilled to announce our upcoming luncheon, Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta Impacts: There’s Even More to Us Now, honoring Lisa Haynor. While we hoped to hold this event in April 2020, we are postponing it due to the CDC recommendations regarding COVID-19. We are working hard to find a new date and will let you know as soon as we have one.

Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta (JWFA) promotes social change and creates positive opportunities for Jewish women and girls. No other organization is as exclusively and passionately dedicated to the advancement of Jewish women and girls in Atlanta and Israel. For seven years we have utilized strategic grantmaking to enrich organizations and communities, but there’s more to us now. We invite you to learn about our leadership initiatives, groundbreaking research, and work combating gender-based discrimination in the workplace.

As we come together to celebrate, we will honor and thank Lisa for her passionate leadership, both as a professional and a volunteer. As a Founding Trustee and past chair of JWFA, Lisa has demonstrated her tireless devotion to women and girls. As a partner at Aprio, Lisa has spent her career going above and beyond for her clients. At the same time, she has held significant leadership roles in many community organizations, including Atlanta Jewish Foundation, The Davis Academy, The Jewish Federations of North America, and Temima, The Richard and Jean Katz High School for Girls.

We hope that you will join us at the luncheon and consider becoming a sponsor of the event to honor Lisa and support JWFA’s vital work. Please click here for a description of sponsorship opportunities. You may mail in the form or click here to pay with credit card. Contact Rachel Wasserman at rwasserman@jwfatlanta.org with any questions. All sponsorships are tax-deductible, and payments are due by June 30, 2020.  A formal invitation to the luncheon will follow!

In addition to celebrating Lisa, we will hear from Rebecca Minkoff, founder of the Female Founder Collective, a network of businesses led by women that invests in women’s financial power across the socio-economic spectrum by enabling and empowering female-owned businesses. Rebecca, an industry leader in accessible luxury handbags, accessories, footwear, and apparel, is dedicated to bringing women together to enact positive change and hosts the “Superwomen” podcast. Rebecca will be interviewed by Atlanta’s own Brittany Tenenbaum from WSB-TV.

Thank you, in advance, for your support. Your participation will enable JWFA to expand our reach and impact, while we celebrate our most-deserving honoree.
