Grants of up to $25,000 to Massachusetts and Israel nonprofits for the advancement of women and girls in Boston and Israel, with an emphasis on the community in Greater Haifa. Boston programs may benefit either the Jewish or secular community. Projects must address one or more of the following areas: education, economic empowerment, personal safety, health, and legal rights.

The Fund welcomes applications for new and ongoing results-oriented projects that can demonstrate a measurable and sustainable impact.

The Miriam Fund is a philanthropic community committed to creating an equitable world that expands opportunities for women and girls. Through strategic grantmaking, the Fund aims to inspire and strengthen women and girls within and beyond the Jewish community and, in the process, encourage its members to be advocates, leaders, and agents of change.

The Miriam Fund’s priority is to support specific projects that address the underlying key challenges that impact women and girls. Requests for general operating and/or capacity-building support will be considered only from organizations that serve women and/or girls exclusively AND have an annual budget of $1 million or less.
