The JoCI is excited to announce a new Request for Proposals (RFP) designed to support Jews of Color in Small Towns and New Localities! Grants of up to $20,000 will be made to leaders, organizations, and partners in rural and small-town regions outside of traditional hubs of organized U.S. Jewish communal life. Some geographic areas of interest may include, but are not limited to, the Pacific Northwest, Rocky Mountain Region, New England, and the South.
Through this grantmaking initiative, we will seed pilot programs and early-stage efforts by and for Jews of Color in small towns and new localities across the U.S. Programs and efforts we fund must also:
- foster community and/or networks (communal and professional)
- build identity, leadership and/or power
- and/or build and advance knowledge by and for Jews of Color
View the full RFP here.
Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis as long as funds are available. Proposals under $5,000 will go through an expedited process.
All of our grantmaking begins in conversation with our Grants team. If you are considering submitting a proposal, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
