ANA OLIVEIRA JEAN SHAFIROFF INTERVIEWS THEPRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE NEW YORK WOMEN ’ S FOUNDATION By Jean Shafiroff

T

I’ve been involved with The New York Women’s Foundation for a long time. Tell our readers what makes it so special. The New York Women’s Foundation is a home for people’s contributions, time, strength, and hopes for the future. The foundation was founded by pioneering women of wealth who believed that coming together with others from all backgrounds and means to give and take action would yield powerful results. And they were right. Over thirty-two years we have awarded $88 million to some 400 grantee partner organizations in New York City and beyond. More than 80 percent of the organizations we have funded are still thriving. We look to community leaders for the best solutions to the challenges their communities face. They have the best insight. What we bring is investment in their organizations, as well as in the leaders themselves, because, at the end of the day, we are investing in people.   We are true to our founding ideals, thanks to the generosity and partnership of women like you — and men as well of course! We have the honor of working with passionate supporters to create a vibrant future for all women in New York City and in doing so, we create a better city for all of us.
