Voices 101 Board

Below are the RFPs for the 2023-2024 Voices 101 Grant Making Cycle.

  • Combatting Antisemitism
  • Homelessness
  • Hunger and Food Access
  • Mental Health 

The application for a grant from the Voices 101 Board can be found here .

Your non-profit may apply to more than one committee (including Voices Alumni Board funding) as long as the programs for which you apply meet each committee's specific grant guidelines and are not identical requests for identical programs. Please note if your organization is looking to apply for one of the two committees that appear for both the Voices 101 and Voices Alumni foundations you will have the option to submit one budget proposal for both committees if the project is the same and funding needs exceed what one grant could provide. Please consider each committee's grant guidelines carefully to determine your non-profit's eligibility. Please note that only 25% of Voices dollars may be awarded to secular/non-Jewish organizations. Grant proposals are due on January 12, 2024, and final grant decisions will be made in May 2024. This year, the Voices 101 Board will have approximately $30,000 and will award grants between $2,500-$8,000.
