Rose Community Foundation is seeking Jewish volunteers in their 20s and 30s who want to be part of a grantmaking program called Roots & Branches Foundation. Eighteen people will be selected to learn about strategic philanthropy and Jewish philanthropic traditions, and to award up to $110,000 in grants to solve problems in the community. Applications to participate will be accepted through Wednesday, June 2.
The Foundation is seeking a diverse group of individuals, including those who are involved in Jewish life and those who are not; those who identify as secular, Orthodox and everything in between; and those who are native Coloradans, as well as newcomers to the area. Applicants must live in the seven-county Denver Metro area.
Now in its fourth year, Roots & Branches Foundation members will meet every two to four weeks between July 2010 and February 2011 and work with Rose Foundation staff to explore strategic philanthropy, identify community needs, review grant proposals and visit prospective grantees
