In 2020, because of the sudden shut down brought on by the COVID-19 crisis, the Women’s Collective Philanthropy Award was not granted in the spring – put simply, it is impossible to fund programs that currently could not run. Instead, the WCPP distributed funds to Jewish Family Services’ Shalom Bayit and Tikvah programs for female clients in response to emergency needs caused by COVID-19. Later in the year, through its fall funding cycle, the WCPP made an additional grant award to JFS Shalom Bayit to provide supplemental support for these clients.
