The Miriam Fund looks for innovative projects that deliver measurable and sustainable outcomes for the advancement of women and/or girls in Greater Boston’s secular or Jewish communities as well as in Israel (with a focus on the greater Haifa community), and address one or more of the following areas: education, economic empowerment, personal safety, health, and legal rights. The Fund welcomes applications for new and ongoing results-oriented projects that can demonstrate a measurable and sustainable impact. The Fund makes one-year grants up to a maximum of $25,000 that may be considered for renewal for up to three years. The Fund does not support capital projects or scholarships, or make grants to individuals.
We are now accepting requests for the 2021-2022 grant cycle from the Boston community only. Any Boston Jewish organization may apply, as well as any secular Boston organization with a project focused on STEM.
The 2020-2021 grants have been announced. The Fund made grants totaling $374,500 to 19 organizations and has awarded more than $4 million since its inception.
