The Miriam Fund (TMF) is a volunteer-led philanthropic community committed to creating an equitable world that expands opportunities for women and girls*. Through strategic grant-making, TMF aims to inspire and strengthen women and girls within and beyond our Jewish community and, in the process, encourage its members to be advocates, leaders, and agents of change.

Since its inception in 2000, TMF has awarded over $6 million to organizations doing crucial work in pursuit of gender equity. TMF’s FY25  Co-chairs are Rachel Goldstein, Debby Posin, and Nancy Levitan Poorvu.
