To ensure the vitality of the Jewish community and to improve the quality of life of the community-at-large, The Foundation awards grants on a competitive basis to nonprofit organizations and programs. From 2006-2014, through our institutional grantmaking process, The Foundation awarded 62 Cutting Edge Grants, 81 General Community Grants, 41 Israel Grants, and 23 Capital Grants, collectively totaling nearly $20 million.
In addition to The Foundation's institutional grantmaking, Foundation donors make grant recommendation directly to the nonprofit organizations and programs of their choice via donor-recommended grants from Donor Advised Funds and Family Support Organizations. Donors can recommend grants to virtually any nonprofit organization.
In 2014, The Foundation and its donors distributed nearly $70 million in grants to more than a thousand nonprofit organizations with programs that span the range of philanthropic giving.
