“Even for those of us who live in this space every day, it is impossible to pick up this book and not learn about a new project. Our hope is that this books gets in the hands of those seeking to learn about innovative and inspirational work. Working on women and girls issues is central to making significant change in our community, and Lilith is among those leading the way with cutting edge and exciting projects like our face-to-face salons, the Lilith blog, and the remarkable depth and richness of content in Lilith’s online archives.”
Added Will Schneider, Executive Director of Slingshot, which publishes the Guide each year, “This second edition of the Women and Girls supplement allows us to feature diverse, powerful projects that demonstrate the impact on and by women and girls in Jewish life today. Innovation is not a category of giving in the way that someone might fund arts or Jewish education. Funders should support projects that resonate with them, and we hope that this guide continues to inform the women and men who are already deeply passionate about these causes, and to inspire individuals to become involved with and support these projects.”
Being listed in the Guide is often a critical step for selected organizations to attain much needed additional funding and to expand the reach of their work. Furthermore, the Guide is a frequently used resource for donors seeking to support organizations transforming the world in novel and interesting ways.
About the Slingshot Guide
The Slingshot Guide, now in its tenth year, was created by a team of young funders as a guidebook to help funders of all ages diversify their giving portfolios to include the most innovative and effective organizations, programs and projects in North America. The Guide contains information about each organization’s origin, mission, strategy, impact and budget, as well as details about its unique character. The Slingshot Guide has proven to be a catalyst for next generation funding and offers a telling snapshot of shifting trends in North America’s Jewish community – and how nonprofits are meeting new needs and reaching new audiences. The book, published annually, is available in hard copy and as a free download at www.slingshotfund.org.
