Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International organizations and individuals for a wide range of economic development and social empowerment projects. Applicants must submit a preliminary form prior to submitting a full proposal. The funding source is especially focused on projects in East Africa, Central America, North America, Israel, and any impoverished Jewish communities.

Jewish Helping Hands launched its Tikkun Olam Grant program in 2012 to advance its goal of inspiring and supporting tzedakah, justice, and righteousness, throughout the world. The goal is to help vulnerable populations in the United States and abroad through a variety of programs focused on economic development and social empowerment, with a particular focus on those demographics that have been overlooked and/or marginalized.

In cooperation with local communities, JHH supports programs that are sustainable and scalable through financial and hands-on support. The objective is to promote organizations and projects that will make a tangible and lasting difference in the lives of the populations they serve.

JHH values programs and projects that aim to bring about positive change for groups of all backgrounds and religious affiliations. JHH will consider making grants to individuals or organizations that show clear promise to achieve one or both of the following:

  • Respond to unmet needs of those who are poor and/or marginalized
  • Promote self-help and empowerment within communities

In the 2022/2023 Grant Cycle, JHH is focusing primarily on projects that provide the basic necessities for a decent life:

  • Women’s Empowerment
  • Education
  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Clothing
  • Water
  • Health
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Gender Equity

Projects are ordinarily eligible for awards up to $5,000.

Term of Contract:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

JHH will consider making grants to individuals or organizations.

JHH especially seeks to partner with grassroots organizations who utilize resources local to their communities especially when those projects support the safety and health of the community members.

To ensure that JHH's funding makes the most impact, JHH will give preference to organizations with smaller budgets (operating budgets under $750k dollars) and projects that would otherwise not be possible without our assistance.

Restrictions:
- JHH will not support overhead or administrative salaries and expenses.
- JHH will not make grants to capital, building, or political campaigns, scholarships, fellowships, or programs administered by for-profit entities, or micro-loan programs.
- Additionally, JHH grants cannot be used to subsidize administrative salaries or expenses, as JHH requires 100% of all grants to be used for the intended program.
