Jewish Incubator Grants

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation provides incubator grants to organizations, synagogues, agencies and schools to develop innovative and/or impactful programs, services, projects and technologies that support and enrich Miami’s Jewish community. Our funding priorities include creating a safety net for the vulnerable, educating and advancing Jewish identity and building community. Grants range from $2,500 to $10,000 and are competitively awarded to support new programs or the expansion of existing programs.

Women's Impact Initiative Grants

The Women’s Impact Initiative provides grants from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Annual Campaign to non-profit organizations that inspire and empower self-identifying Jewish women and girls in Miami, as well as improve our local community through programs that achieve social, economic, religious and political equality. Eligible applicants include nonprofits with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status (or fiscal sponsorship) that serve the Jewish community in Miami-Dade County. While we will give preference to strengthening Jewish nonprofits and programs based in Greater Miami, we also encourage partnerships with those outside the Jewish community to bring high-quality programs to our community. Nonprofits that have current Federation grants must be in compliance with the terms of those awards to be considered.

Only one application per organization will be accepted.

Our funding priorities include mental health and entrepreneurship. While we will accept proposals covering other areas, priority will be given to programs in these two areas. Grants will range from $5,000 to $15,000 and will be competitively awarded to support new programs or the expansion of existing programs advancing the mission of Federation’s Women’s Impact Initiative. Projects that will be considered for grants must serve a majority Jewish population. The gender lens used must consist of a deep examination of how culturally entrenched gender norms affect women and girls and must take these distinctions into account when identifying both problems and solutions. The aim is to ensure that our local Jewish community is “gender aware” and that outcomes achieve social, economic, religious and political equality by being inclusive of and responsive to the needs and issues of Jewish women and girls.
