Federation kivel

Students from Temple Beth Sholom of the East Valley’s religious school play dreidel with residents of Kivel Campus of Care last December. In 2018, Kivel received grant money from Federation because it aligns with the core impact area of enriching senior lives.           

Jewish community organizations and programs that work toward advancing Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix’s goals are invited to apply for the 2019 grant cycle.

This year, Federation allocated almost $2 million to groups and programs that focused on the organization’s four core impact areas: enriching senior lives, engaging the next generation, building community and supporting Israel and Jewish communities worldwide.

“This process allows us insight into a wide range of the services and programs that will add to our community’s continued growth and vibrancy,” said Robin Loeb, chief operations officer at Federation. “We’re looking forward to receiving program applications from organizations throughout our Jewish community.” 

In addition, Federation will consider innovative and/or collaborative programs that work to improve Jewish lives. 

To be considered for a grant, groups must submit a letter of intent to Federation by Wednesday, Nov. 7. Once the letters are received, Federation will select and invite organizations to submit a full grant application.

In 2018, Federation allocated a total of $124,235 to senior services such as the Senior Concierge service, a collaborative program between Federation and Jewish Family & Children’s Service; Smile on Seniors of Arizona; and Kivel Campus of Care.

To engage the next generation, BBYO PHX, the Jewish Genetics Diseases Center of Greater Phoenix and Moishe House received a total of more than $62,000, while Jewish day school partners received almost $118,000.

The Israeli American Council Arizona and Jewish Federations of North America Israel Action Network were allotted $55,500 for various Israel advocacy efforts. Those funds also went to programs that provide mentorship to youth in Israel, the Jewish Agency for Israel’s Youth Futures and the Ethiopian National Project.
