WAEF grants available for Jewish women/children programming


The Women’s Alliance Endowment Fund of the Jewish Federation Foundation of Greater Rhode Island is pleased to announce its 2024 Request for Proposals.

Established in 1993, WAEF benefits Jewish women and children by supporting educational, health, cultural and social-services programs worldwide.

WAEF encourages proposals for new or existing programs and services that have the potential for long-term impact.

Grants may fund, for example, program-specific supplies/equipment, specialized staff and travel. Grants will not be considered for administrative equipment/supplies, payroll, multiyear funding, or from organizations that have been operating for fewer than two years.

All Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts and overseas Jewish organizations, agencies and congregations whose mission falls within the purview of the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island may submit grant proposals.

WAEF encourages applicants to find community partners, which need not be Jewish in affiliation. For overseas proposals, preference is given to those providing services in our partner regions of Warsaw, Poland; Afula-Gilboa, Israel; and Rosario, Argentina.

Email endowment@jewishallianceri.org to request an application, discuss a possible program, or inquire about joining WAEF. The deadline to submit a proposal is April 1.
