BJCF Calls for 2013 Grants

The Boulder Jewish Community Foundation (BJCF) has an endowment fund, the income from which is used to assist Jewish communal organizations in the Boulder area with space- and facility-related needs.

In 2012,  we assisted 17 organizations and granted $14,420.  These gifts ranged from $250 – $2,500 and were directed primarily towards facility needs, including:   Boulder Jewish Festival, annual fundraising events, and space rentals.

This year we plan to award funds in September 2013 for spending on projects in the 2013-2014 grant cycle:

  1. Assistance with the underwriting of the facility costs of a planned fundraiser or event.
  2. Facility needs for the improvement or upgrade of your building.

If your organization, or an organization you are aware of, could benefit from assistance please send a one page written request to boulderjewish@gmail.com.  We ask that all requests be received by July 5th. We will confirm all grant requests received.  If you do not receive a confirmation by July 8 please resubmit your request no later than July 12 with “Resubmission” in the title line.    In your submission please indicate the amount requested, explain the intended purpose, outline the anticipated impact of the allocation and a plan for donor matches (if applicable).  We strongly encourage, and will give priority to, grant requests for funds that will be used for matching grant purposes on at least a dollar-for-dollar basis.

Also include:

    • Evidence of your current IRS 501(c)3 status, Organization name, address, and name, email address and phone number of primary contact.
    • If your organization received a grant in 2012 please provide us a brief status on the use of the funds and matching amounts received.
