Jews of Color Philanthropy Cohort

Have you ever wanted to find out how the world of Jewish philanthropy works? The Jews of Color Initiative has partnered with Amplifier to launch the Jews of Color Philanthropy Cohort. In this 8-month program, cohort members will meet for an hour and a half once a month to learn about Jewish philanthropy, JoC initiatives, and grantmaking from a diverse range of experts from the field. These sessions will empower cohort members to envision a future of Jewish philanthropy guided by multiracial values and led by diverse funders. In an exciting chance to put knowledge into action, the cohort will be provided with actual grant funds to allocate to real initiatives based on the cohort’s informed philanthropic choices and values developed throughout the programThis free, educational opportunity is competitive; the program will host 10 individuals who are Jews of Color seeking experiential learning in Jewish philanthropy. No prior experience or qualifications are required for cohort members.
