The Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley is excited to continue the ChaiStarter grant funding. This year, applications will be for grants up to $50,000 for the fiscal year of 2018. There is a possibility of a grant award of UP TO the total amount. The intent is to generate sustainable new programs in our catchment (Mountain View to Gilroy) and for our constituency.
ChaiStarter grants are intended to inspire individuals, organizations, congregations and agencies to develop and implement new or enhanced programs to meet significant community needs or create new and innovative engagement opportunities in the South Bay's Jewish community.
Proposals should build upon any of the following fundamental tenets: education, community, improving a life. Proposals should address these populations:
Special consideration will be given to collaborative programs (multiple agencies' involvement) and to those program which meet the needs of our vulnerable community members, interfaith and intermarried, minority ethnic communities and families with alternative structures. Programs must show viability and independent sustainability within 3-5 years.
These programs must have measurable impact and be consistent with the Federation’s mission – to foster, initiate and preserve activities that strengthen Jewish life.
