Allocations & Community

Impact

 

 The Federation’s committees consider local community-building needs and global shared responsibilities, and then allocate funds accordingly. The impact of this collective funding of Federation allows us to constantly and consistently meet the needs of our Jewish family, no matter how far reaching, no matter where they may be. 

 

The Federation, through our system of community partner agencies and grantee organizations, is able to bring together every age and segment of our community to strengthen Jewish life. Our allocations grants provide meals and programs for seniors; quality Jewish education, scholarships and summer camps for children; Israel experiences for teens and young adults; counseling activities for families; and a variety of programming and initiatives that elevate our Jewish community.

The Impact of Your Dollars at Work

Apply for Funding

Thank you for your interest in applying for a grant allocation from Jewish Nevada. The allocations process has changed to align to be a calendar year cycle with our Campaign for Jewish Needs. This year, application deadline will be in early December. The application for Project and Event grants can be downloaded below.

Local Allocations

Funds are allocated to local Jewish agencies and programs for maximum impact, to collectively support what have always been our community's priorities - caring for people in need, connecting individuals and families to the Jewish community, and providing opportunities to discover personal Jewish identities.

People We Help

We collectively support what have always been our community's priorities - caring for people in need, connecting individuals and families to a Jewish way of life, offering meaningful opportunities for Jewish discovery, and supporting Jewish communities worldwide.

Global Allocations

Funds are also allocated to national, Israel, and overseas programs that fight global Jewish poverty, connect the Jewish people, rescue Jews at risk and ensure an Israeli democracy dedicated to Jewish pluralism.

Allocation Process

Allocating Community Campaign funds is a fair, democratic, and participatory process. More than 60 volunteers spend 640 hours over six months to make sure your gift goes to the programs that most effectively address the most critical needs in our community, and best support and nurture Jewish life locally and globally. They make sure your gift will be used wisely and with the greatest impact.

November 1, 2017 Request for Proposal was Released

December 15, 2017 Applications Deadline at Noon

***No late applications will be accepted or considered. All ongoing projects and events which receive a grant must take place January 1- December 31, 2018. 

 

 

Currently, this round will have very limited funding available unless we reach out campaign goals. To this end, the 2017 Campaign for Jewish Needs must raise an additional $450,000 in order to meet the funding needs requested last year. We will not be able to accomplish this goal without your support and the support of your Board, your members and participants, and the rest of the broader Jewish Nevada community. It is imperative that everyone participates, and the rest of the broader Jewish Nevada community. It is imperative that everyone participates in some way that is meaningful to them in the 2017 Campaign for Jewish Needs so that we are able to fund our community's programs. Please share and encourage your constituents participation in the 2017 Campaign for Jewish Needs. If you have any Campaign related questions please contact Stefanie Tuzman at Stuzman@jewishnevada.org.

 

All applications are due via email to Julia Franks, Director, Planning & Community Impact at Julia@jewishnevada.org.

Event Grants are allocations designated solely for the execution of a community event (examples include Menorah Lightings, Sukkah Events, Pop-up Shabbat, Celebrate Israel, etc.). Fundraising events are not eligible for grant funding.
