How to Apply for a Grant
The Jewish Community Foundation and Jewish Federation conduct one regular grant cycle each year. There is a two-step application process.
Are you considering requesting a small grant of up to $5,000? You may wish to apply on an expedited basis through the Jewish Community Foundation’s Small Grants process.
Read the Information for Prospective Applicants before starting an LOI.
STEP ONE: Letter of Intent – New LOI Deadline – October 13, 2021
Any organization applying for a grant must first submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) via our online portal, following our instructions. The LOI is an informational proposal that allows the Foundation to determine basic eligibility and compliance with our funding priorities.
To be eligible for consideration during the 2022 grant cycle, your LOI must be received no later than October 13, 2021.
- Regular program grant LOIs, and must be submitted via the Foundation’s online portal.
- Organizations may submit one LOI per cycle.
- For more detailed information regarding the Foundation’s competitive grantmaking program, we strongly encourage you to review our Information for Prospective Grant Applicants before starting your LOI.

STEP TWO: Submission of Full Application
If we approve your LOI, your organization will be invited to submit a full grant application. Because the demand for support often exceeds our available grant dollars, an invitation to submit a full grant application does not guarantee funding.
