Jewish Community Foundation of El Paso seeks Impact Grant Proposals
Impact Grants for July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023
Applications Due March 21, 2022
The Jewish Community Foundation of El Paso is currently accepting proposals from nonprofit 501(c)(3) agencies, organizations, and synagogues in El Paso seeking to enhance Jewish life and increase Jewish engagement in El Paso. Grants can be for new programming or the expansion of a current program; they may also be requested with multiple-year funding if appropriate. Special consideration will be given to collaborative ventures focused on one or both objectives.
“The Jewish Community Foundation of El Paso is so very fortunate to be able to dedicate funds to enhance Jewish life in El Paso,” said Stuart Shiloff, President of the Foundation. “Initially created by the sale of the Chai Manor building on the former JCC campus, the Foundation’s Impact Funds have since grown, added through the generosity of others to allow the Foundation to make an impact on Jewish life in our community” he explained.
