Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International organizations and individuals for a wide range of economic development and social empowerment projects. Applicants must submit a preliminary form prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to provide basic needs to vulnerable populations. A particular focus will be placed on demographics that have been overlooked and/or marginalized.

JHH values programs and projects that aim to bring about positive change for groups of all backgrounds and religious affiliations. JHH will consider making grants to individuals or organizations that show clear promise to achieve one or both of the following:

  • Respond to unmet needs of those who are poor and/or marginalized
  • Promote self-help and empowerment within communities

In the 2021 Grant Cycle, JHH is focusing primarily on projects that provide the basic necessities for a decent life:

  • Food
  • Shelter
  • Clothing
  • Water
  • Health
  • Internet Capabilities

JHH is also focusing especially on projects in East Africa, Central America, United States, and any impoverished Jewish Communities.

JHH especially seeks to partner with grassroots organizations that utilize resources local to their communities especially when those projects support the safety and health of the community members. To ensure that funding makes the most impact, JHH will give preference to organizations with smaller budgets (operating budgets under one million dollars) and projects that would otherwise not be possible without JHH's assistance.
