Jewish Incubator Grants Support Innovative Programs That Make a Difference

Now in its ninth year, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation's Jewish Incubator Grants Committee awarded $70,000 to 15 organizations that make a difference in Miami. With an eye toward developing innovative and impactful programs, the 2022 grant recipients enrich our local Jewish community by providing a safety net for the vulnerable, strengthening Jewish identity and building community. 

“We're fortunate to have so many programs in our community that actively address the variety of challenges we are facing,” said Committee Co-Chair Andrew Wolf. “It is a privilege for each of our committee members to help align Federation’s funding priorities with unmet and underserved needs in our Jewish community.”

Recipients are creatively finding ways to build a more tolerant and inclusive Jewish life. Keshet and Eshel are developing opportunities for engagement for LGBTQ+ individuals; Chai Life Line, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and JAFCO are providing services to families of children with special needs and 3G Miami, NCSY’s Hate Ends Now and Building Bridges: Joining Hands are combatting antisemitism and intolerance through Holocaust education. “So many of the grant recipients have proposed creative ways to address our community’s needs, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to be able to help bring their proposals to fruition,” said Committee Co-Chair Jennifer Fine.
