Be a Part of “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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, send your donation to Boulder Jewish Community Foundation, P.O. Box 20338, Boulder, CO 80303.
