Hadassah Foundation: Leadership Development for Adolescent Girls and Young WomenDeadline: February 5, 2018
The Hadassah Foundation is an investor in social change for girls and women by supporting projects in the United States and Israel. Its mission is to improve the status, health, and well-being of women and girls; bring their contributions, issues and needs from the margins to the center of Jewish concern; and encourage and facilitate their active participation in decision-making and leadership in all spheres of life.
The Foundation is soliciting proposals for its Leadership Development for Adolescent Girls and Young Women program, directed at girls and women ages 12-30 in the United States. The Foundation welcomes proposals:
- For gender-sensitive, social change projects that develop the leadership skills and capabilities of adolescent girls and young women in the Jewish community. Both new and existing programs will be considered for funding.
- To create or expand gender-sensitive curricula and training programs that foster the leadership skills and capabilities of Jewish girls and young women; preference will be given to those organizations that have the capacity to provide training using this material on a regional or national basis.
All prospective grantees are required to: a) identify the specific leadership skills and capabilities their programs aim to develop; and b) describe their metrics for measuring progress.
Amount: Grants will be made of up to $40,000 each. One multi-year grant of $25,000 per year for three years will also be made.
Eligibility: Applicants or their fiscal sponsors must be tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be based in the United States.
