The SteelTree Fund

Request for Proposals

The SteelTree Fund is seeking applications for innovative ideas that help young adults ages 22-45 and teens find meaning and participation in Jewish life. Our SteelTree members are interested in funding projects and programs that have impact on the engagement of this young population in the Pittsburgh Jewish community. Special consideration will be given to applications whose work focuses on strengthening Jewish continuity.

The SteelTree Fund provides grants of $5,000, $3,600, or $1,800 to projects that serve the Pittsburgh Jewish community. Projects will be considered only once per calendar year, though an organization or individual can apply for more than one project within a calendar year. SteelTree will entertain requests for renewal funding but not within the same campaign year (July 1-June 30).

If you are interested in being considered for a grant, please submit a full application. Grantees will be asked to provide name recognition of the SteelTree Fund on all marketing materials. Applications should be submitted via email to Shelly Parver, Planning Manager, Jewish Education & Continuity, at steeltreefund@jfedpgh.org.
Applications sent via email should include documents sent in Word and/or PDF format. You will receive an e-mail acknowledgement that your proposal has been received. CLICK HERE for detailed application instructions.
