2016 Grants Focus on Public Affairs and Leadership Development
The Jewish Community Foundation proudly announces its 2016 discretionary grants, totaling $215,105 — to benefit the Jewish community locally and in Israel, through the unrestricted Fund for Jewish Philanthropy, the Jewish Women’s Endowment Fund and field of interest funds.
Building on last year’s grants, the Foundation again focused on two of the areas identified through the 2011 Community Conversation – public affairs and leadership development. The Foundation awarded a grant to the Board of Rabbis, which received a planning grant last year, to launch the Jewish Community Relations Initiative. Leadership development programs include college students at Hillel, and a second year of the Jewish Women’s Institute at the Women’s Jewish Learning Center, which pairs mentors and mentees over a nine-month period and immerses them in all aspects of leadership training and culminates with an active role in a project.
