We were thrilled to hold our virtual celebration, Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta Impacts: There’s Even More to Us Now, honoring Lisa Haynor on November 10, 2020. While we did not charge for this event, any donation is greatly appreciated and will support our work for gender equality. We are grateful to the generous sponsors of JWFA Impacts!

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 eight 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 came together virtually to celebrate, we honored and thanked 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 consider a donation to honor Lisa and support JWFA’s vital work. You may mail in the form or click here to pay with credit card. Contact Rachel Wasserman at rwasserman@jwfatlanta.org with any questions. 

In addition to celebrating Lisa, we heard 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 was be interviewed by Atlanta’s own Brittany Tenenbaum from WSB-TV.

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