grantmaking-process

The Foundation funds organizations with a track record of success, strong leadership, appetite for continuous learning and improvement, and potential for broader impact in three areas: Education; Health; and Jewish Life. Foundation staff and Directors proactively identify potential grant applicants through due diligence procedures. The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.

Progress on deep-seated social issues such as education and health is made over the course of many years, and we seek out promising leaders and provide long-term support commensurate with their far-reaching goals. We do so both through stand-alone grants and, in some cases, as part of a group of aligned funders committed to jointly support an organization’s growth. Since 2002 the majority of our grants have been multi-year.
