2014-15 Community Impact Grants

To strengthen and support a vibrant Jewish community in the East Bay and overseas, the Jewish Federation and The Jewish Community Foundation of the East Bay award grants annually to a variety of programs and organizations.

This year, grants will be awarded in three funding areas:

  • Strengthening Jewish Identity and Education
  • Caring for Those in Need
  • Enriching Jewish Life and Culture
  • Annual grant funding is made possible by the Federation’s Community Campaign, and through the Foundation’s Permanent Community Endowment and restricted funds. Additional funding is provided by generous Foundation donors through individual donor advised funds and supporting foundations.

    Proposals are due on April 25, 2014.

    A grants committee composed of Federation and Foundation leaders and community members at large will review proposals and make funding recommendations in May. Their recommendations will be approved by the Foundation and Federation boards prior to grantee notification in June. Funds awarded in June 2014 will be distributed in January 2015.

    Before applying for grants, please consult our eligibility guidelines to determine the fit between your proposal and our strategic goals.

    Organizations are welcome to submit multiple proposals, however the total dollars awarded to a single institution will be considered in determining individual grant awards.

    If you have questions about your eligibility, or your proposal concept, please feel free to contact Dana Sheanin, Senior Director of Community Impact: dana@jfed org

    Proposals should be submitted electronically by 5 PM on April 25 to Jessi Norris, Program Officer: jessi@jfed.org. No exceptions will be made to the proposal deadline.
