The Ottawa Jewish Community Foundation (OJCF) is seeking applications for the Women’s Collective Philanthropy Program (WCPP) Grants Program to use the power of Collective Philanthropy to nurture and maintain a systemic difference in the status of women and children.

The WCPP goals are to ENGAGE, EDUCATE and EMPOWER women to become catalysts for social change.
