Jewish Life COVID-19 Impact Mitigation Grant Opportunity
Rose Community Foundation is accepting funding requests to enable Jewish nonprofits to focus on immediate recovery from COVID-19 and support near- and long-term mission fulfillment.
Grants will be structured as general operating or programmatic grants, at the request of the applicant, with all funds to be used for the organization’s stated response to COVID-19 or its impact on the communities served. Grant awards will be up to 15% of the organization’s operating budget and will be for a period of twelve months, July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021.
Priority Funding Areas
- Strengthening Jewish organizations.
- Community safety, health and wellness.
- Sustaining and rebuilding ritual/communal life.
As Rose Community Foundation, Colorado and the rest of the world wrestle with the far-reaching impacts of COVID-19 on public health, daily life and the economy, Rose Community Foundation also remains committed to supporting Jewish life in our community. To that end, we have developed the following framework that will guide our Jewish Life grantmaking in 2020.
- Supporting Jewish organizations on the front lines of COVID-19 prevention, containment and response. These grants will support organizations that provide direct services to populations most-vulnerable to - or directly impacted by - the medical and/or economic impacts of this pandemic.
- Sustaining and nurturing Jewish life in this time of physical isolation. Because so many of our Jewish traditions involve congregating and coming together, these unprecedented times call for creativity and innovation to continue our connections to each other, our traditions and our community.
- Helping to mitigate the economic disruption of COVID-19 on Jewish organizations' financial health. Many organizations’ revenue streams have been disrupted by COVID-19 restrictions and related economic factors may exacerbate challenges with organization’s fiscal health.
