Grant Description
Grants of up to $15,000 to Florida nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to promote equality and inclusivity for women and girls in the local Jewish community. Funding is intended for activities that take the needs and concerns of Jewish women and girls into account. Eligible applicants must serve the Jewish community in Miami-Dade County.

Grants will be competitively awarded to support new programs or the expansion of existing programs advancing the mission of Federation’s Women’s Impact Initiative. Projects that will be considered for grants must serve primarily a Jewish population. The gender lens used must consist of a deep examination of how culturally entrenched gender norms affect women and girls and must take these distinctions into account when identifying both problems and solutions. The aim of the grants is to promote programs that ensure that the local Jewish community is “gender aware” and that outcomes achieve social, economic, religious and political equality by being inclusive of and responsive to the needs and issues of Jewish women and girls. Funding priorities include mental health and entrepreneurship. While they will accept proposals covering other areas, priority will be given to programs in these two areas.

The Women’s Impact Initiative provides grants to local nonprofits from the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign to organizations in Miami that inspire and empower Jewish self-identifying women and girls, and improve the local community through programs that achieve social, economic, religious, and political equality.

The aim is to ensure that the local Jewish community is “gender aware” and responsive to the needs and issues of this critical demographic, whose health and well-being is vital to the success of the community. The programs supported help transform the lives of Miami’s diverse population of Jewish women and girls.

Awards may be used to cover expenses directly related to implementing the cost of new programs or the expansion of existing programs, such as salaries of program staff, outreach, marketing, supplies, materials, events or local travel. 


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Eligible applicants include nonprofits with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status (or fiscal sponsorship) that serve the Jewish community in Miami-Dade County. While they will give preference to strengthening Jewish nonprofits and programs based in Greater Miami, they also encourage partnerships with those outside the Jewish community to bring high-quality programs to the community.

Nonprofits that have current Federation grants must be in compliance with the terms of those awards to be considered.

Grants cannot be used for non-local travel, scholarships, or capital projects.
