The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Prescott announced it is now accepting Community Grant applications for 2019. Applications will be accepted until April 8 with the recipients being named in late May of 2019. Each year the Jewish Foundation provides funding to charitable community organizations through its grants application process. In the past fifteen months, the Jewish Foundation awarded more than $250,000 in grants to various local charities.
“For over 5000 years the concept of charitable giving to one’s community has been an integral part of Jewish tradition,” said foundation president David Hess. “The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Prescott is proud and honored to support local non-profit organizations and agencies that provide vital services to those in need throughout the greater Prescott area again this year. We hope more organizations will take advantage of this support.”
To assist those interested in applying for a grant, the general guidelines of importance to the Grants Committee include:
Organizations requesting funding must be an IRS recognized direct 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
The organization and program requesting funds must provide its benefits and services to the quad-city area of Yavapai County.
