BJCF Announces Grassroots Initiative

Be a Part of “Grassroots Jewish Boulder”

The Boulder Jewish Community Foundation (BJCF) is pleased to announce a new initiative: Grassroots Jewish Boulder.

Grassroots Jewish Boulder provides an opportunity for the BJCF to solicit small donations and make small grants in support of Jewish causes that may be too small or otherwise  not qualify for funding from other community foundations or organizations.  Suggested donations will be in the $18  to $180 range, with grants being, in general, under $1,000.

For the past two years, the BJCF has solicited letters of  inquiry for small grants at the Boulder Jewish Festival.  These grants are primarily paid from the  income of the BJCF’s Endowment.  However, the terms of the endowment agreement restricts funding to space-related needs.

Grassroots Jewish  Boulder offers the opportunity for the BJCF to fund other “out of the box”  types of projects.  Examples may  include:

  • Scholarships for Jewish communal professionals to attend  conferences.
  • Purchase of study materials for Chavurot.
  • Underwriting of small community and fundraising events.

The Boulder Jewish Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible.  To participate in Grassroots Jewish Boulder, contact Allen  Hittelman at boulderjewish@gmail.com.  Or,  send your donation to Boulder Jewish Community Foundation, P.O. Box 20338,  Boulder, CO 80303.
