Mission and Vision

Inspired by our Jewish values, elluminate pursues and promotes a world in which all women and girls are ensured a healthy and supported environment…a world in which we all have equal opportunity for economic, religious, social and political achievement.

We work to make this a reality by cultivating leaders for now and the future, funding innovative programs and advocacy efforts, by providing education on vital issues, and by encouraging our donors to view all philanthropic giving through a Jewish and gender lens.

What We Do

Elluminate’s leading voice and presence raises the consciousness of a broad-based community gender-based issues affecting all populations. To achieve change, we have two avenues that merge into one: 1) provide organizations that are founded and/or run by exemplary women with a platform of support and guidance to help create and sustain social change programs with missions aligned with the goals of elluminate; 2) educating the broader community on issues that are emergent in important areas; and 3) advocating for policies that address gender, race, and other issues at the local, federal, and international level. 

Elluminate is uniquely positioned to create long lasting, systemic, and impactful change. Elluminate philanthropists have the opportunity to hone and share their philanthropic voice to affect change in New York, Israel, and around the globe.

Visionary leaders – doers and donors – work together, deepening their relationships in order to counteract the perceived imbalanced power paradigm.
