The Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. offers grants to non-profit organizations serving the Southern New Jersey community, including Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey agencies, synagogues, Jewish day schools, and secular non-profits. These grants are awarded twice annually, during our Spring and Fall JCF Grants cycles.
New for the Spring 2023 JCF Grants Cycle: The JCF provides funding of up to $5,000 (an increase from our previous maximum of $3,600) for each grant application that is approved by our Grants Committee and Board of Trustees, and applicants can apply for funding for more than one program per cycle. Each program is eligible to receive funding over the course of up to three cycles (usually once per year for three years), with a new application required for each cycle.
Funding is provided primarily for new and innovative programming and services benefiting residents of Burlington, Camden, and/or Gloucester counties in South Jersey. Grants are not intended to supplement or duplicate existing funding or ongoing operating budgets of an organization or programs and services presently in existence.
