Hadassah Foundation: Leadership-Building Projects for Women and Girls

Hadassah Foundation Invites Applications for Leadership-Building Projects for Women and Girls

The mission of the Hadassah Foundation is to improve the status, health, and well-being of young Jewish women and girls; bring their contributions, issues, and needs from the margins to the center of Jewish concern; and encourage and facilitate their active participation in decision-making and leadership in all spheres of life.

To that end, the foundation awards one-year grants of up to $40,000 in support of gender-sensitive social-change projects that develop the leadership skills and capabilities of adolescent girls and young women between the ages of 12 and 30 in the Jewish community. Gender-sensitive curricula and training programs that foster the leadership skills and capabilities of young Jewish women and girls also will be considered. Preference will be given to organizations that have the capacity to provide training that uses this material — whether during the grant year or the following year.

All applicants are required to identify the specific leadership skills and capabilities their programs aim to develop and describe their metrics for measuring progress.

To be eligible, applicants — or their fiscal sponsors — must be considered tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be based in the United States.

Visit the Hadassah Foundation website for complete program guidelines, information about previous grant recipients, and application instructions.
