The Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix NowGen Giving Circle is accepting grant applications through May 9. Precedence is given to nonprofit organizations that serve young Jewish adults in the Valley and in Israel.
“We are so proud of the early career adults who make up our NowGen Giving Circle and are passionate about making a difference in our community,” said Sam Levine, co-chair of the NowGen Giving Circle. “We realize we can make a larger impact working together to solve some of the problems facing our local and Israel Jewish Community.”
Awards are typically under $5,000, but organizations may request up to $5,000. Multiple awards are given.
Last cycle, the circle awarded nearly $16,000 to local and international nonprofits.
The NowGen Giving Circle is comprised of 19 young Jewish adults who want to give in a meaningful way. Members contribute a minimum of $500 and meet four times a year. The Federation provides funding and guidance to the circle.
