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.
