MetroWest Jewish Community Fund

The goal of CJP’s MetroWest Community Grants Program is to enhance the well-being and vibrancy of the MetroWest Jewish community.

Grant applications are welcome for results-oriented projects and initiatives that demonstrate a measurable, sustainable impact within the MetroWest communities and involve one or more of the following areas:

  • Community Enhancement Initiatives: The creation of an initiative, event, or program that strengthens or enhances the MetroWest region, supporting communities of any type. Community can be defined by attributes such as spiritual, interest, life-cycle, and identity.
  • Organizational Capacity Building: The process of bringing an organization to the next level of operational, programmatic, financial, or organizational maturity. It reflects an investment in the effectiveness and future sustainability of an organization to effectively deliver its mission. This does not include staff salaries. Examples of capacity building include: board and lay leader development, succession planning, marketing and communication strategy, fundraising planning, strategic planning, staff training and development, technology improvements, and organizational assessment.

Application Deadline: Friday, May 1 at 5:00 p.m.

Final decisions will be made by June 2020.
