The Jewish Federation is looking for innovative ideas that will make Los Angeles a better place, in the spirit of Tikkun Olam — and we’re inviting everyone in our community to bring their creativity to the table. Maybe you’ve got a vision for an event that will bring the Jewish community closer to other groups in L.A. Perhaps your idea is for an ongoing service project, a grassroots initiative or an art installation that will change the face of our community. The possibilities are limitless. If your idea is chosen, we’ll make it take off—together!

We will award grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 to the project proposals that will make a meaningful impact on L.A. in the following areas:


Education, Civic Engagement, Transportation,
Economic Development, and Hunger.
