Source: Covenant Foundation Grants
The Covenant Foundation recently announced nearly $900,000 in new grants as part of its mission to support and advance excellence and impact in Jewish education. The new round of grants underscores a commitment to initiatives across the landscape of Jewish educational experiences, settings and audiences, and propel innovative work in technology, new media, youth engagement and community building through education.
Foundation grants are divided into two categories: Signature grants, which provide funding for up to $250,000 for up to five years, and Ignition grants, of up to $20,000 for one year to support new and untested approaches.
The Covenant Foundation is currently inviting 2012 Signature and Ignition grant applications. Applicants should visit the foundation website for information and guidelines. The deadline for submitting an initial letter of inquiry is Feb. 29, 2012.
