Grants of up to $25,000 to Florida nonprofit organizations for programs that benefit women and girls. Applicants must submit a letter of inquiry prior to applying. Funds may be requested for general support or for specific programs. Funding is intended to support programs that promote social change in the areas of economic security and empowerment for women and girls. US organizations located outside of Florida must have a program or presence in Florida to be considered. JWF’s priority is to benefit Jewish women and girls, but funding is not limited to Jewish organizations.
JWF’s shared vision is to promote economic, religious, social and political equality for women and girls throughout the state of Florida and in Israel. To achieve that vision, JWF utilizes strategic, gender lens grantmaking to provide both project and general support to nonprofits whose mission reflects our own. JWF Trustees are committed to take risks to fund issues that other organizations do not address.
All proposals will be considered through the prism of a “gender lens.” Using a gender lens means understanding the unique challenges women and girls face pursuing equality and the ways in which systems, institutions, and policies must change to advance women’s equality. A project or program that includes or specifically targets women and girls is not necessarily designed using a gender lens.
JWF will only fund projects that address women and girls’ economic security and empowerment, which includes policy work, advocacy campaigns, and educational programs.
Examples of specific topics include:

JWF allocates grants between $10,000 and $25,000 per grant award.
- JWF only allocates multi-year grants, with the second year of funding contingent upon grantees’ attainment of pre-determined benchmarks.
- All awards are 2 year grants, meaning a grant of $10,000 is $10,000 per year for two years.
- Organizations are eligible to receive 2 two-year cycles of funding (4 years) and thereafter will be unable to apply for the next grant cycle (2 years).
