Two Clevelanders Appointed to Serve on National Women’s Philanthropy Board

Suellen Kadis and Jennifer Korach have been appointed to serve a two-year term on the Jewish Federations of North America’s National Women’s Philanthropy Board (NWP).

Both women have a long history of leadership within the Jewish community. Kadis, currently chair of the Women’s Philanthropy Initiative and a member of the Federation’s executive committee, has also served as Women’s Campaign chair and as chair of the Health and Human Services sub-committee. Korach is a member of the National Young Leadership Cabinet and Community Relations Committee.

As NWP board members, Kadis and Korach will travel to communities around the country to assist in campaign-related training, special events and to provide motivational boosts.  “I look forward to the opportunity to represent Cleveland and learn from other leaders who care passionately about the Jewish community and who also seek to enhance our ability to care for one another through the annual Campaign,” said Kadis.

On a local level, NWP Board members serve as a liaison to their community to ensure continuity between Women’s Philanthropy activities and national initiatives of the Jewish Federations of North America. NWP Board members serve as role models to other women (and men) in the community inspiring them to get involved and become leaders in their own right.  NWP Board members are part of a national body that exists to serve our local communities.

Currently, the National Women’s Philanthropy Board has members from more than 60 communities. They represent federations of all sizes from across North America.
