Applications for Fiscal Year 2022 Ignition Grants are now open!

 

FUNDING FOCUS

The Ignition Grant program reflects and supports the Federation’s core value of  innovation by cultivating new, pilot, and one-time projects that address the evolving needs of the Puget Sound Jewish community by providing grants of up to $7,500.

During the FY 2022 grants cycle, proposals that address at least one of the following issues will receive priority:

  • Outreach to unconnected/unaffiliated members of the Jewish community
  • Outreach to Jews of Color
  • Projects that have a racial justice component
  • Projects that address refugee relief

Proposals are open to any Jewish organization in Western Washington that is a 501(c)(3), fiscally sponsored, or is presumed to be according to IRS regulations (e.g. synagogues). Nonprofit arts and culture organizations in King or South Snohomish counties with a “Jewish-themed” project may also apply.
