Lynne Elfland, Risa Gewurz, and Abby Fierman


Lynne, Risa, and Abby were the phenomenal Co-chairs who led our first ever Women’s Philanthropy Virtual Mission to Morocco. Together, they put an extraordinary amount of time, energy, and thought behind this virtual experience. They helped think through the various components of the mission from beginning to end, including the theme and itinerary. They thought of engaging and interesting content ideas for participants and then tied everything back to CJP's global work.

Lynne, Risa, and Abby are incredible advocates for CJP who help connect people in their networks to our work. They made sure that this mission would engage others in our community to CJP and one another. They inspired others to give during the mission and kept in mind that this event was not only a way to engage those in our community, but that it was also in service of philanthropy. All three Co-chairs are dedicated to CJP’s mission and they each make a meaningful gift to CJP.
