Philanthropist and author Jean Shafiroff’s reign continues as an undeniable force in style and fashion, recently chosen as the “Best Dressed in Ball Gowns” for The Daily Fashion Report’s 2018 “New” Best Dressed List. Jean Shafiroff is renowned for her ball gown collection, and she leads the New York social circuit as an unrivaled expert source on philanthropy with extensive experience as a gala planner. She serves on a variety of national and international charity boards to improve the lives of underserved populations, women’s rights and well-being, health care, animal welfare and resources for children in need.

 

The 2018 "New" Best Dressed List says of Jean Shafiroff, “Her full-on ball gowns are quite grand and entrance making, and while they are as notable as her tireless charity work, she is always quick to emphasize that it is her philanthropy and humanitarian efforts, which are her top priority.”

 

Jean Shafiroff’s enviable wardrobe includes designer labels such as Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, and Dolce & Gabbana. She is committed to supporting up-and-coming as well as established fashion designers by showcasing customized fashions from luxury and couture designers B. Michaels and Victor dE Souza, for whom she is often a model and muse.

 

Beyond her duties as volunteer fundraiser, chairwoman, spokesperson, gala planner and connoisseur of style and fashion, Jean Shafiroff authored Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life by What You Give. The practical guide to modern giving, with in-depth knowledge and resources, is now available on www.Amazon.com

 

The Daily Fashion Report’s 2018 “New” Best Dressed List also includes: Anna Wintour, the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, Victoria Beckham, Janelle Monae, Millie Bobby Brown and Zendaya Coleman to name a few.

 

About Jean Shafiroff:

Jean Shafiroff, philanthropist, activist, humanitarian, and author of Successful Philanthropy: How To Make A Life By What You Give, is at the vanguard of a new movement of modern philanthropists. Jean's philanthropy goes beyond financial contributions and includes the gifts of extensive time and knowledge. Through her work, she encourages and seeks to empower all individuals to become philanthropists so that they can build the fulfillment of giving into their lives.

 

A volunteer fundraiser, leader and spokesperson for several charitable causes, the spectrum of Jean’s philanthropic work includes improving the lives of underserved populations, women’s rights and well-being, health care, animal welfare and resources for children in need, in addition to other causes. Jean serves on the boards of New York City Mission Society, French Heritage Society, Couture Council (Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology), Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services (20+ years), Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation Honorary Board, Southampton Bath & Tennis Club’s Charitable Foundation, and Global Strays.  In addition, Jean is an Ambassador for the American Humane Society and the Ambassador-at-large for the Southampton Animal Shelter.  She is a New York Women's Foundation Board Alumna who remains very active with the Foundation and women's issues.

 

Widely recognized for her philanthropic work, Jean has been recognized and featured in numerous publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Gotham Magazine, The New York Times, Hello, Hola, New York Social Diary, Avenue, Hamptons Magazine, and The Huffington Post, among others.

 

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.
