The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, through its Overseas Funding Committee, a sub-committee of IWJ, funds a variety of projects and programs in the areas of human and social services, Jewish education, and coexistence. Particularly, we seek to support programs whose work enhances our Partnership 2Gether Region (Karmiel/Misgav).
Most grants range from $10,000 to $25,000. Our funding is limited to organizations registered as United States 501(c)3 non-profits, or with legal conduits holding that status.
Our Request for Proposal details the process by which an organization can apply for a grant.
