Funding for Post-Pandemic Jewish Life in Northern Manhattan
The Y’s Norman E. Alexander Center for Jewish Life is proud to offer Jewish institutions in Washington Heights and Inwood financial assistance to support local programming, as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Funding includes contributions towards new programmatic investments taking place between September 2021 and June 2022 — up to $613 for a single institution proposal and up to $1,800 for a joint venture between two or more institutions.
Proposals are due on September 15, 2021, and should include:
- Institution(s) represented in the application
- Names and email address for institutional representatives
- Brief program proposal outlining the programmatic idea and goals (not to exceed 500 words)
- Simple budget
Please email your proposal as a PDF to the Y’s Norman E. Alexander Center for Jewish Life Director Rabbi Ari Perten at [email protected].
Institutions may submit up to two separate proposals.
Funding recipients are required to submit a post-program report and have two lay leaders (or one lay leader and one professional leader) represent their organizations at a community forum on March 27, 2022, 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
