The Janis Levine Music Women and Children's Endowment Fund of the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation
Funding from the Janis Levine Music Women and Children's Endowment Fund of the Dallas Jewish Community Foundation is available to all organizations offering services that ensure the safety and security of women and/or children. This may include, but is not limited to, services that ensure the following: safe workplaces for women, school safety for children, security of women and their bodies, women and children affected by the border crisis.
Founded over 20 years ago in memory of Janis Levine Music, this Fund was intended to honor Janis' life, as well as her passion to help all women and children. With the love and support from Janis' family and friends, her legacy has become larger than life. The Fund's Advisory Committee, still with many of the original members, maintains high standards for grant making and has a genuine concern for promoting the mission of the fund.
