Honor a woman you love. Help women & children in need.

The Lillian Fund works to create a world where all women and children have equal opportunity for economic, religious and social achievement. We accomplish this by funding programs and initiatives, and encourage all our members to view philanthropy through a Jewish values and gender lens.


Who We Are




The Fund is named for Lillian D. Wald, a Jewish woman who left a privileged life to champion the rights of Eastern European immigrants living on New York's Lower East Side at the turn of the century. In 1893, Lillian Wald founded the Henry Street Settlement, a neighborhood health center that later became the Visiting Nurse Service. The Fund carries on Lillian Wald's legacy.
