The Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island is pleased to announce a new local funding cycle – called Innovation Funding – geared towards fresh and creative projects, programs, and services aiming to serve an otherwise underserved population and illustrating short-term success for long-term sustainability.

Innovation grants aim to provide resources and support to those looking to explore and imagine meaningfully new and different solutions to our greatest community challenges and will be awarded up to a maximum amount of $20,000 per project.

The Alliance seeks programs and projects that are impactful, measurable, and possibly replicable on a larger scale based upon need, future resources, and programmatic success. Collaborative projects are encouraged, particularly those that involve multiple organizations and synagogues, and/or cross disciplines communitywide, and offer meaningful connections that directly affect teens and young adults, families with young and school-aged children, newer residents and the unaffiliated, seniors, socially-isolated, people with disabilities, interfaith families, or the general community.

Innovation grant funding cycles have a quick turnaround so projects can be scheduled to begin starting in January 2017.

For inquiries prior to submission, please contact Minna Ellison: mellison@jewishallianceri.org or 401.421.4111 ext. 176, or Jennifer Zwirn at: jzwirn@jewishallianceri.org or ext. 102.

Completed applications must be submitted electronically no later than 12pm on Thursday, December 22, 2016 to Jennifer Zwirn: jzwirn@jewishallianceri.org.

Applicants will be notified of their status the week of January 2, 2017.
Please refrain from contacting staff with status queries.
