Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 to USA non-profit organizations for overseas programs and projects primarily in Israel and the Former Soviet Union. Letters of inquiry must be submitted by December 1. Proposals must address least one of the following areas: food and human security needs, at-risk youth, green economic development, coexistence, Ethiopian community, Jewish education, and special needs populations.

Much of the Federation's funding goes to continued support of programs and projects funded in previous years, so in any given year the Federation is likely to fund three to five new projects. Funding is limited to organizations registered as United States 501(c)3 non-profits, or with legal conduits holding that status.

Special consideration will be given to applications that work to enhance the Federation's Partnership 2Gether Region (Karmiel/Misgav).
