Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $250 to $2,500 to Colorado individuals and organizations for Jewish food, environmental, farming, and outdoor projects in the Denver and Boulder areas. Funding may be used for new or existing program support and expansion, and for seed funding.

Funding is intended to provide guidance and support to inspire and advance sustainability-related education, action, and advocacy in the Jewish community by supporting existing and emerging Jewish institutions and leaders engaging in Jewish food, outdoor, and environmental education and projects, thereby building capacity.

The mini-grant program and the projects it funds also serve as doorways bringing new people into Jewish life, revitalizing Jewish life overall, and creating a healthier, more sustainable Jewish community and a healthier and more sustainable world for all.

Examples of eligible projects, programs, and initiatives include:

- Projects that address issues of animal welfare in the food system
- Food justice projects addressing hunger, food deserts, fair trade, or other equity issues in the food system
- Initiatives that address food waste and food rescue
- Educational programming around food and/or sustainability and Jewish tradition for youth or adults (e.g., adopting Hazon’s Min Ha’aretz curriculum, film screening, lectures, gardening, cooking or food preservation classes/workshops)
- Outdoor experiential learning or activities that increase awareness of the environment/nature and Jewish tradition
- Education and advocacy around food or environmental policy or legislation (national or local)
- Developing and implementing Jewish food policy/guidelines for your Jewish institution
- Training leaders and/or educators in food and environmental issues and Jewish tradition
- Building or expanding Jewish CSAs, gardens, or farms
- Programs or projects that engage b’nai mitzvah students in the Jewish food/environmental movement
- Projects that will help achieve any of Hazon’s 7-year food goals
- Food- or sustainability-related interfaith programs, like expanding a CSA to bring on a church partner or hosting an interfaith speakers panel
