WINNIPEG — Just five percent of charitable giving in North America goes to support programs for the betterment of women and girls, says Susan Weidman Schneider.
“That’s why an organization such as the Women’s Endowment Fund of the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba is so important,” the founder and longtime editor of Lilith, North America’s leading Jewish feminist magazine, told the fund’s sixth annual luncheon on May 11.
The former Winnipegger was the keynote speaker at this year’s luncheon. Her topic was philanthropy and how women approach the subject differently than men do. (Weidman Schneider also spoke at the fund’s launch in 1994.)"
