Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for social change initiatives to benefit Jewish women and girls. Funding is intended for programs that address issues in the following impact areas: leadership and education, economic empowerment, and legal advocacy/social justice.
Organizations may request specific program support or general operating support. JWFA seeks to fund projects that place emphasis on sustainability, leveraged funding, and partnerships.
Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta is committed to expanding opportunities and promoting social change for Jewish women and girls. This means the focus is on initiatives that address the underlying factors contributing to the challenges faced by Jewish girls and women.
Social change is a systemic approach seeking to alter cultural or social patterns. Social change for Jewish women and girls seeks to address the inequity and disparity within the community that works against women’s empowerment, self-determination, economic empowerment, and gender equity. For example, social change programming approaches an issue such as the elimination of domestic violence in the Jewish community from a place of prevention, rather than funding direct services meeting the needs of victims who have already suffered abuse.
Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta seeks grantee partners who achieve social change by:
- Creating long-term changes in the lives of Jewish women and girls and their communities
- Addressing underlying causes of inequity, suffering, and disenfranchisement
- Identifying and testing innovative programming solutions
- Facilitating leadership development as well as the self-empowerment efforts of Jewish women and girls
