Jewish Organization Program Grants
The Jewish Heritage Foundation’s Board of Directors has approved an allocation of $1.2 Million to support programs and core agency support requests within the Jewish community.

Programs determined by Kansas City Jewish Funders as community priorities:
- Programs that serve the elderly
- Programs that focus on Jewish education and Jewish continuity
- Agencies that received funds for programs in the Priority Two category may request the same amount awarded in 2012
Jewish Programs, not included in the priority areas described above that received programs grants in 2012.
- Agencies who received program grants in this category are suggested to request 80% of the 2012 award.
