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 you to bring your 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 city. The possibilities are limitless. If your idea is chosen, we’ll make it take off — together!

We will support projects — at up to $5,000 each — based on allocated funds, for proposals from 501c3 eligible organizations that will make a meaningful impact on L.A. in the following areas:

  • Homelessness
  • Reentry/Job Training
  • Child Welfare
  • Sustainability/Stewardship of the Earth
  • Health/Wellness
  • Fighting Hunger
  • Literacy

2018 Applications to open in June

Please register as a Grant Applicant. Also, please note that organizations that have not previously received Federation funding will require approval by our staff to complete the registration process. Nonprofit organizations and individuals with a fiscal sponsor are eligible to apply.
