Organizations with annual operating budgets under $1.5 million may apply for grants of up to $50,000. LOIs are due by 5pm EDT on Tuesday, September 30, 2014. Grant recipients will be notified of their awards by June 1, 2015, after a 3-stage application process: Letter of Inquiry, Full Proposal (for semi-finalists only), Interview (for finalists only). The grant year runs from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.

Emerging Models of Jewish Connection in North America grants support innovative approaches to building Jewish communities and creating new access points to Jewish life, especially for disengaged Jews in their 20s and 30s.

Jewish Peoplehood grants support innovative organizations around the world that build connections between young Jews across geographic, ethnic, denominational, and ideological borders; that emphasize the Jewish people’s collective responsibility to heal the world; and/or that grapple with the special role that Israel plays in contemporary Jews’ identity. Organizations from any country are eligible to apply.
