Grants to North Carolina and South Carolina nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, and synagogues for programs and projects that benefit Jewish seniors. Priority will be given to requests for direct service support. Funding is intended to address a broad range of physical, mental, and social needs of Jewish adults.

CFJS desires to support new, innovative, community-based programs. CFJS invites potential grantees to help develop methods to identify underserved Jewish adults.

There are 2 priority categories BJH seeks to support. They are:

Health and Wellness Programs that target people who may have multiple, complex, specific mental and/or physical health needs. Some examples include:

  • Case Management with a licensed professional or case worker
  • Congregational Nurse
  • Dementia or memory impairment
  • Group Day Care and Respite programs
  • Other innovative approaches

Socialization Programs reaching out to Jewish adults whose basic needs may not be met and/or are geographically isolated. Some examples include:

  • Community building, education and furtherance of Jewish values
  • Food Distribution
  • Transportation
  • New and Innovative

BJH Foundation aims to help support programs and services that advance the Foundation’s vision. These include:

  • Long term community impact.
  • Collaboration with other local organizations.
  • Participant involvement in social services (volunteer or financial.)
  • Applicant organization showing their financial commitment to the program.
  • Specific qualitative and quantitative outcomes such as numbers served and measurable impact on lives.
  • Uniqueness (non-duplicative of other area programs or services)
  • Competent grant management and program oversight.
