Coalition for Jewish Learning offers grants

 

MILWAUKEE – The Coalition for Jewish Learning of Milwaukee Jewish Federation has launched a grant program to support innovative ideas for education.

The grants, which will range from $2,500 to $10,000, are aimed at exposing more children to Jewish education by lowering barriers, and creating excellent, sustainable and impactful programs for Jewish learning.

Last year the Milwaukee Jewish Federation conducted a task force to explore how to invest in Jewish education for youth and teens. One of the recommendations was to develop the grant program, which is now accepting proposals for funding from organizations.

CJL seeks to fund programs that expose more children to Jewish education, are impactful in Jewish learning, lower barriers to participation, exemplify respect for different approaches to Jewish life, add to Milwaukee’s diversity of educational experiences and offer opportunities for collaboration across the Jewish community.

Initial proposals are due by April 15. For more information, contact Tziporah Altman-Shafer at TziporahA@MilwaukeeJewish.org or 414-963-2718. The grants program is funded by the Federation’s Annual Campaign.
