JWF Launches 2021 Grants Cycle

The Jewish Women’s Foundation of Metro Detroit is pleased to invite applications for our 2021 Grants Cycle.

JWF supports programs, projects, and initiatives that advance social change by expanding opportunities for Jewish women, their families, and community. We consider requests for single-year funding on a year-to-year basis, with a maximum grant amount of $20,000.

Our 2021 Grants Cycle is designed to respond to needs that have been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We will give special consideration to programs that: 

  • Increase women’s economic security through childcare, pay equity, leadership development, or other systemic approaches;
  • Respond to or prevent domestic abuse;
  • Improve women’s mental well-being; and
  • Specifically address the needs of underserved or vulnerable communities.

In addition to discrete programs, we will offer infrastructure and/or capacity building support when it is aligned with JWF’s mission and values.

Applications are due on July 1, 2021. If you have questions or would like to discuss a potential application, please contact Sigal Hemy, JWF Director
