Philanthropy has long been concerned with medical care and research—that is, fixing health problems. But in recent years, more and more philanthropists have also turned their attention to the positive substance of health and wellness—asking not just how to fix problems, but also how to actively promote good health and wellness, and prevent illness before it begins. Jewish philanthropy is a part of this trend, and while health and wellness are universal aspects of human flourishing, they are also Jewish values.
Join other Jewish funders for a series of programs dedicated to funding health, wellness, and preventing disease. In this first webinar, speakers will define terms associated with this field and give an overview of health and wellness as it relates to philanthropy. Funders will learn about philanthropic responsibilities in this space and how this movement is impacting the world of Jewish philanthropy.

Join fellow funders to learn how the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust (EFCT) builds strong relationships with grantees and supports organizational—not only program—performance. Discover how these strategies can shift the funder-grantee power imbalance.
Following an introduction by Margot Rogers of the Leap Ambassadors Community, Center for Effective Philanthropy (CEP) President Phil Buchanan and EFCT Executive Director Jennifer Hoos Rothberg will discuss EFCT’s grantmaking approach, including:
- Building stronger relationships—highlighting findings from CEP’s Relationships Matter: Program Officers, Grantees, and the Keys to Success report—and how EFCT’s approach illustrates the findings in practice. In a 2015 Grantee Perception Report® from CEP, EFCT’s grantees rated them more positively than grantees at the typical funder on a number of key measures.
- Building stronger organizations—highlighting how EFCT leverages the Leap Ambassadors Community’s Performance Imperative by inviting grantees to complete an organizational self-assessment built on seven disciplines of high performance.
