Morris J. & Betty Kaplun Foundation invites applications for Youth Board grants program

The Morris J. & Betty Kaplun Foundation Youth Board invites applications for grant proposals for its winter 2022-23 grant cycle.

The Kaplun Foundation Youth Board is an initiative of the Morris J. & Betty Kaplun Foundation. Established in 2019, the initiative allows high school and first-year college students to learn about concepts of Jewish philanthropy, explore Jewish values, dive into grantmaking, and review and analyze grant proposals during a series of online board meetings over a school year.

Each year, a new youth board develops its mission statement, requests proposals, and determines how to distribute $5,000 of the foundation’s funds to one or more nonprofit organizations.

To that end, guided by the Jewish values of human dignity and service, the 2022-23 Morris J. & Betty Kaplun Foundation Youth Board seeks to support organizations that work to mitigate the impact of racial bias in patient care and medical education to create empathy and objectivity in health care by promoting anti-racist practices.

Applicants must be a nonprofit organization with a 501(c)(3) status or international equivalent and be able to accept funds following IRS rules. Organizations should generally have an annual budget of less than $3 million. The Youth Board may consider proposals from larger organizations for distinct projects or divisions with smaller budgets.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Morris J. & Betty Kaplun Foundation website.

Deadline: February 7, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. PT
