Overview:

Jewish Life

Gaia Fund focuses on San Francisco programs that foster and strengthen the connection of Jews to their heritage and community, in the interest of ensuring the relevance and continuity of the Jewish tradition. 

The Fund considers requests for initiatives that enrich the experience of Judaism, with a focus on promoting an appreciation of Jewish history, art, and culture. 

Geographic emphasis is placed on programs serving the Jewish community of the City of San Francisco. The Fund may, on occasion, make grants for regional or national initiatives if they are judged to have a particular local relevance. 

Grantmaking

Grants for projects usually range from $5,000 to $50,000. The Fund defines grants in this category as those that support projects with finite funding needs, or those that provide seed funding for new initiatives. Grants for specific programs may be awarded in either a single payment, or in annual installments that may range from two to five years.

Gaia Fund will consider capital and endowment campaign requests, but assigns such requests a lower priority. Grant awards in support of capital and endowment are typically consistent with the grant amounts awarded for specific programs.
