2021 JFM Luncheon in support of the Women's Endowment Fund


It is with profound disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 Jewish Foundation of Manitoba Luncheon in support of the Women’s Endowment Fund.

We miss seeing you in person! Another year has passed where we would have loved to host all of you at our annual Jewish Foundation of Manitoba Luncheon in support of the Women’s Endowment Fund.

Unfortunately, that will not be the case. However, charitable organizations that provide essential programs for women in Manitoba need us all more than ever. In 2020, we all faced new and complex challenges related to COVID-19. The Jewish Foundation of Manitoba’s response was laid out to act quickly, inclusively, and responsibly to assist organizations affected by the pandemic.

For the Women’s Endowment Fund granting committee, this meant deciding to distribute over $40,000 to six organizations that continue to support our most vulnerable women and children during their most significant time of need. For 2021 we continue to work alongside these essential pillars of support, providing grants that enable them to embrace those who need it most.

We will be reaching out to those who wish to continue their support for the Women's Endowment Fund despite the unfortunate reality that we are unable to host this year's luncheon.
