Community Aid

Resilience Fund for Synagogue Communities Micro-Grant Application

The Resilience Fund for Synagogue Communities will assist clergy in providing direct support to community members in need and support for projects providing aid to communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Congregations may request matching funds of up to $1,000 for community aid projects, such as grocery deliveries or food preparation for the home-bound, delivery of Jewish ritual objects, or other volunteer mobilizations to support community members during these challenging times. Grassroots efforts to assist synagogue members or the community at large with needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic are encouraged. 

Grants will be made to synagogues and organizations (not individuals) and will be awarded on a rolling basis. The maximum total request per congregation is $5,000. This funding is generously provided by the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

Eligibility and Criteria:

  • Grants will be made to Synagogues, Chabads, or Jewish religious organizations with 501(c)3 nonprofit status or fiscal sponsorship in the Federation’s service area.
  • Applications must be submitted by professional staff (clergy or other representatives).
  • Community Aid grants (up to $1,000 per project) may be grassroots in nature but must be requested by a clergy or staff member. 
  • All funds are provided on a matching basis with $5,000 maximum per organization.

The Federation is no longer accepting applications for this program. Thank you.
