Jean Shafiroff In Resident

While there are many who have a favorite charity, there are few who devote a significant portion of their lives to it and even fewer who are the motor behind raising attention and financing for a myriad of different causes. But whether one mentions the NY Women’s Foundation, the New York City Mission Society, the Southampton Hospital or the Southampton Animal Shelter, the one name that keeps popping up is that of Jean Shafiroff. A member of eight different charity boards, Shafiroff is more than a donor or even a philanthropist; she is a woman on a mission.

Jean Shafiroff Covergirl
With an MBA from the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University and a BS in Physical Therapy from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, Jean – after a brief stint as a physical therapist at St. Luke’s Hospital in NYC – went on to work both in public finance and in private partnerships on Wall Street. From there Jean gradually embarked upon a journey of devoting herself to a battery of worthy philanthropic ventures. Starting with the Jewish Board of Family and Children Services, an organization she has now been involved with for over 20 years, and it’s clear that Shafiroff’s enthusiasm is contagious. At present the charity boasts a $180 million dollar annual budget and a total of 175 different programs. Jean, after successfully raising two daughters, increased her devotion to her philanthropic work by serving in the capacity of board member, chairwoman, honoree, underwriter and hostess of numerous charity events. Through her hard work and perseverance, she is personally responsible for raising millions of dollars, which has been used to help thousands of people in need.

Married to Martin Shafiroff, an investment advisor, Jean works in tandem with several city-based and Southampton nonprofit organizations. Besides the aforementioned charities, she is involved as a board member of the Couture Council, French Heritage Society, Lighthouse Guild Advisory Board and the Southampton Bath and Tennis Club’s Charitable Foundation. Jean is who she is because of her indefatigable need to help others. Beyond her laudable managerial skills, her compassion, generosity and contagious enthusiasm are most admirable. She is also humble and praises others rather than herself. Although the Resident Magazine interviewed Shafiroff a year ago - because of the vast amount of work she has done since - we decided to call on her again in order to let our readers know what she’s been up to since.
