Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Institutions, agencies, and organizations throughout the country that are involved in Jewish education are eligible to apply for funding for innovative and educational programs and projects. The funding is provided to promote the production of replicable and financially responsible approaches to Jewish education. There are two Covenant Grant categories, Ignition and Signature. Applicants for Covenant Signature Grants may request up to $250,000 for up to five years of support, although a grant of this size is unusual. A more typical grant does not exceed $150,000, with generally no more than $50,000 per year.

Ignition Grants are designed to explore new, untested ideas or to determine how established practices can become even more effective. An Ignition Grant is appropriate for an exciting idea that is not yet ready for a multi-year Signature Grant, perhaps because it is still in the planning stage or because the organization needs time to develop necessary capacity and expertise. Any organization that receives an Ignition Grant may apply for a Covenant Signature Grant after submission of the final report. Applicants for Covenant Ignition Grants may request up to $20,000 for one year.

Each proposal must identify a single project director who will supervise all aspects of the project throughout the grant period. The Foundation makes a special investment in each project director in the form of professional development and support. Applicants for Signature Grants should be prepared to attend a two-day meeting of project directors in February 2013 and each February thereafter for the duration of the grant.
