Making meaningful Jewish experiences accessible and affordable
Providing a continuum of opportunities from preschool to college, teen Israel trips, and youth and family camps

Camp Scholarships     

The Federation supports scholarship and grant opportunities for a variety of camp experiences.



Israel Scholarships     

Jewish experiences for teens and young adults can have a lasting impact on their Jewish identity and engagement. From visiting Israel to participating in a nature-based weekend program, the Federation helps make it possible for more teens to discover what being Jewish means to them.

The applications for Israel Within Reach and Israel Experiences are currently closed. The Federation is reassessing the best way to distribute these funds and more information will be posted here on our website as soon as it’s available. Please check the website for updates in Fall 2023.

If you were enrolled in the Gift of Israel program, and believe you may still have an open savings account, we request that you liquidate your account and either request a refund or donate your savings to our Israel Experiences Scholarship fund by completing the account disbursement request form and returning the form to our office using the following contact information:
