JEF "Unexpected Opportunities" Grant Program
The latest in big ideas is to think small. JEF recognizes that not all important events have big budgets. To help, we are instituting a micro grant program for opportunities that arise for which you have not planned. Requests for between $100 and $500 will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
Funds can be used for one time events or speakers' fees. These grants are meant to be supplemental, and are not intended to cover the entire cost of any program.
This application may be used for sponsorship requests as well. Sponsorships can be requested up to $1,000.
Only Jewish organizations serving the Pioneer Valley are eligible to apply.
THIS APPLICATION SHOULD ONLY BE COMPLETED BY AN AUTHORIZED STAFF MEMBER OF THE REQUESTING ORGANIZATION.
Please provide your contact information.
