Sarah Richmond: Circle of Excellence Growth Award

For her continued desire to grow as a leader within CJP. After participating in The Cynthia and Leon Shulman Acharai Leadership Program at CJP from 2017–2018, Sarah co-chaired both the Women’s Philanthropy (WP) Hands-on Philanthropy event and “Mitzvah Mondays” initiative. She then joined the WP Board as the Vice President of Leadership Development and served on CJP’s Donor Advised Fund Task Force. Sarah is brilliant, kind, and dedicated — and is always looking for ways to bring new women into the fold at CJP. Beyond her incredible leadership, Sarah is deeply committed to her philanthropy. She established a Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) fund, which continues her gift to CJP in perpetuity, and created a Donor Advised Fund with CJP so that her giving is done through a Jewish lens.
