Leadership-Building Projects in the United States

Hadassah Foundation Invites Applications for Leadership-Building Projects in the United States

The Hadassah Foundation invests in social change for girls and women by supporting projects in the United States and Israel aimed at improving the status, health, and well-being of women and girls; bringing their contributions, issues, and needs from the margins to the center of Jewish concern; and encouraging and facilitating their active participation in decision-making and leadership in all spheres of life.

To that end, the foundation will award one-year grants of up to $40,000 in support of gender-sensitive social change projects that help low-income women in Israel achieve economic independence. Projects should be designed to 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 Jewish girls and young women also will be considered. Preference will be given to those organizations that have the capacity to provide training using this material on a regional or national basis.

Organizations may apply independently or in collaboration. Both new and existing programs will be considered for funding. All applicants are required to identify the specific leadership skills and capabilities their programs aim to develop and to 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, including information about previous grant recipients, and application instructions.
