About

The Family Fund was founded by Mandy Hakimi in February of 2018. Having found herself in nonprofit fundraising professionally, and as a working mother, she applied her skills to fill a growing need in the community. Scratch that. The Country. But with any giant problem, the solution may come one tiny step at a time. The goal is for Chicago to provide a successful model that can be replicated countrywide!

I couldn't believe that the United States could be so behind when it comes to something as essential as paid parental leave. So I decided to do something about it.

How Does it Work?

The Family Fund provides a one time gift of up to $500 to two Jewish Chicagoland women a month, who do not qualify for paid maternity leave from their employer.

Once we can keep this model sustainable, we will increase in dollars given and women served!

 

Our Vision

The Family Fund's ultimate vision is not to exist! We hope to provide temporary relief for families suffering from lack of leave now, and partner with organizations working to realize government paid parental leave in the future, so that every American family can receive the support they deserve.
