Jewish National Fund-USA’s Boruchin Center is now accepting Letters of Interest regarding its 2025 grant funding period. The center is committed to strengthening the lifelong connection between all Americans, especially Jewish American teens, with the land and people of Israel. Accordingly, programs that foster these connections will be considered.

Unlike a traditional foundation, the Boruchin Center is creating synergies with its grantees in ways that meaningfully accelerate both their own programs and Jewish National Fund-USA’s overarching mission. Specifically, successful applicants will demonstrate how they will elevate both organizations’ work for the land and people of Israel.

“Following the darkness that spread throughout Israel and the Jewish world on October 7, our people have come to a crossroads,” said Boruchin Center Chair, Scott Schreiber. “This moment in time requires us to step out from the sidelines and redouble our efforts to positively impact the future of our children and future generations to come. Now, more than ever, we realize that Israel and America share a common destiny driven by mutual values and a belief that our best days are yet to come.”

Interested parties are invited to submit a Letter of Interest describing their organization and how they wish to collaborate with the Boruchin Center and its mission.

Grantee Criteria:

  • $100,000 minimum grant request from JNF Boruchin Center.
  • Grantees must also raise matching funds (for a minimum $200,000 budgetary need)
  • Current 501(c)3 status required

All Boruchin Center grants last for one year.

Letters of Inquiry are due by Feb. 15, 2023.
