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 2006-2013, through our institutional grantmaking process, The Foundation awarded 53 Cutting Edge Grants, 75 General Community Grants, 32 Israel Grants, and 23 Capital Grants, collectively totaling more than $16.5 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 2013, The Foundation and its more than 1,000 donors distributed $65 million in grants to hundreds of nonprofit organizations and programs that span the range of philanthropic giving.
