2021 Request for Proposals
Goal: To make significant contributions towards a tangible and enduring capital need aligned with the Jewish Federation’s priorities.
Approximately $200,000 is available for grants this year.
Grants will be awarded to community organizations in Greater Philadelphia (i.e. Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties). Applications from Israel are by invitation only.
All grantees must use funds only as detailed in the grant agreement. In addition, at the completion of the project all grantees must submit an actual budget and substantiating documentation.
Grantees will be notified in early June about funding decisions.
Jewish life and learning, social responsibility and security projects will be prioritized.
Projects where JFRE funds will be “last dollars in” will also be prioritized.
Funds can be used to support capital projects that allow for a new acquisition, new construction, a substantial expansion, or rehabilitation of an existing service/construction or the replacement or renovation of a deteriorated capital asset. Equipment and adaptations related to COVID19 are also encouraged.
The grant amounts will range between $5,000 and $50,000 for a one-year grant; however, larger grants are possible.
Projects should enhance the quality of community life, link the community with its heritage, contribute to usable community infrastructure, or serve as a resource for children, youth, and adults.
