New York Lifestyles Magazine Celebrates 
Cover Star Jean Shafiroff



New York Lifestyles Magazine hosted the cover party celebrating author, philanthropist and cover star Jean Shafiroff at her private residence in New York City. Participators of the charity scene, supporters and friends shared in the celebration of Jean Shafiroff who in the New York Lifestyles cover story discussed the importance of philanthropy and bringing awareness to women’s causes.


Jean Shafiroff, accompanied by her husband Martin Shafiroff, embodied elegance as she welcomed New York City’s high society to her luxurious private residence. The cover star donned one of her beloved ball gowns, a black and white Victor dE Souza dress with floral pattern stitching that she paired with white leather gloves and statement earrings to complete the sophisticated look.


Enjoying champagne, invited guests celebrated Jean Shafiroff’s philanthropic acumen which has brought awareness and gracious contributions to the prestigious organizations and causes she supports.


For author Jean Shafiroff, the charitable act of giving, as conveyed in her book Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life by What You Give, is an institution within our society where everyone has a seat at the table. Jean Shafiroff tells New York Lifestyles Magazine that regardless of status or net worth, “Philanthropy is not an exclusive club.” She insists that those with the time to volunteer or the ability to financially contribute to underserved populations should lead a life of charitable giving.

 Jean Shafiroff has tasked herself with the responsibility to raise the profile of charitable causes by being actively involved as a volunteer fundraiser, public speaker, donor and leader. In the New York Lifestyles magazine cover story, Shafiroff recalls how she became involved with New York Women’s Foundation, through her network of friends, which has led to an abundance of successful benefit luncheons attended by New York City’s power players.

Jean Shafiroff has served on the board of the New York Women’s Foundation (NYWF) since 2012 and has been a key supporter of the foundation’s efforts to bring awareness to women’s social issues, hosting annual luncheons, co-chairing the NYWF gala and making significant financial contributions over the years. NYWF Board Alumnus Jean Shafiroff has grown increasingly passionate about elevating women out of poverty and creating economic stability for all woman.

Jean works closely with the multiple causes she supports. Each year she chairs numerous galas and hosts events benefiting numerous not-for-profit organizations. She is well-known for her leadership in raising money for many charities, including the Southampton Hospital, New York City Mission Society, New York Women's Foundation and the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation.  Jean is often a guest speaker on TV and radio shows throughout the country.  The subjects she speaks about include philanthropy, human rights, fashion and animal welfare.


Jean has been honored by several organizations including the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, New York City Mission Society, Youth Counseling League, Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services, Surgeons of Hope, The Ellen Hermanson Foundation, Pet Philanthropy Circle, Animal Zone International, NYC International Film Festival, 2018 Women's Leadership Awards hosted by NY State Assembly Woman Rebecca Seawright, and Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation.


Jean holds an MBA from the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University and a BS in physical therapy from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. She has worked both in public finance and private partnerships on Wall Street. Prior to that, she was a physical therapist at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City. Jean is married to Martin Shafiroff, an investment advisor, and together they have two daughters who share their mother’s interest in charitable causes. Jean and her family reside in both New York City and Southampton, NY.
