WIJC grant opportunities


The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle just released the Small and Simple Grant application. Last year, WIJC was one of the organizations selected for this competitive award for the Island Ivrit Hebrew program. Through that grant award, five children and almost a dozen adults took part in a six week Hebrew class taught by a visiting Rabbi and the classes were affordable and open to all.

If you have a project, an idea, or an inkling to obediently follow directions from others that do in an effort to hatch a plan for something, please let WIJC know. Jot down your talents, resources, connections, and ideas and send them to info@whidbeyjc.org or leave them in the comments below.

Grants and funding do not fall from the sky. If you want community here on this island, seize opportunities to create it.

The deadline is approaching.


Small and Simple Grant Accepting Applications

The application process is now open for the Jewish Federation’s 2012 Small and Simple Grant. These grants are awarded to a new, demonstration or one-time-only project at a Jewish non-profit organization in Western Washington or any non-profit arts and culture organization in King or South Snohomish Counties with a particular “Jewish-themed” project. These grants are capped at $5,000 for a one year period and cannot be used toward capital projects.

All applications are due by September 28, 2011 and no late submissions will be considered.
