The Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven has established a new grant-based funding process to inspire creativity, collaboration, and engagement from every aspect of our community.   

We welcome participation from synagogues, Jewish organizations, and individuals with project proposals that meet the needs of our growing community in the following areas:

  • Jewish Education
  • Caring for the Vulnerable
  • Enagagement Opportunities

The goals of this new grant-based funding process are to:

  • Unite our Jewish community, embracing diversity and strengthening relationships through shared values and goals.
  • Empower Jewish journeys through learning and immersive experiences that create meaningful moments in Jewish life.
  • Maximize impact by building bridges amongst the entire community to foster a robust Jewish community and encouraging collaboration between Jewish organizations to maximize resources.
  • Advocate as a voice of the collective Jewish community.
  • Enhance the quality of life in Greater New Haven by engaging unaffiliated members of our community to ensure Jewish continuity.
  • Support creative and impactful community programs that nurture and advance Jewish values.
