Jewish Helping Hands
DescriptionThe Organization's Tikkun Olam Grant Program seeks to advance the goal of inspiring and supporting tzedakah, justice and righteousness, throughout the world. The Program's goal is to help vulnerable populations in the United States and abroad through a variety of programs focused on economic development and social empowerment, with a particular focus on those demographics that have been overlooked and/or marginalized. The Program aims to promote organizations and projects that will make a tangible and lasting difference in the lives of the populations they serve. The Program will consider making grants to individuals or organizations that show clear promise to achieve one or both of the following: respond to unmet needs of those who are poor and/or marginalized or promote self-help and empowerment within communities. Key projects will focus on food, shelter, clothing, water, health, and internet capabilities. The Program will focus its grantmaking on projects and programs in East Africa, Central America, the United States, and any impoverished Jewish community. The Program prioritize partnering with grassroots organizations who utilize resources local to their communities especially when those projects support the safety and health of the community members. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
