Pursuing More Just and Inclusive societies
FUNDING IN THE U.S.
In the United States, our work is focused in six core portfolio areas that seek to advance racial, gender and economic equity and to strengthen Jewish communities.
Quote from Stacy Schusterman
Our Jewish values have always been—and will always be—at the core of our family’s philanthropy: a commitment to the pursuit of justice, repairing the world, and treating all people with dignity and civility.

How Jewish Organizations are Showing Up for Women’s Rights and Safety
Amid increasing threats to women’s rights and freedoms, Jewish organizations are at the forefront of advancing women’s rights within Jewish communities and throughout the United States. The groups’ efforts range from advocating for abortion access to supporting survivors of domestic violence, to encouraging safe, respectful and equitable Jewish workplaces and communal spaces.
7 Competencies for Effective Leadership
Since launching in 2015, the Schusterman Fellowship, our leadership development program for Jewish leaders, has identified seven common competencies that have helped Schusterman Fellows strengthen their capacity to successfully lead their organizations and communities—regardless of their unique skills, challenges and backgrounds.
We believe leaders across all sectors can benefit from these competencies to drive meaningful and lasting change. Our latest guide includes:
- Comprehensive overviews of each competency;
- Personal reflections from leaders who practice these competencies in their lives and work; and
- Exercises to help leaders begin practicing these competencies today.
