The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is now accepting proposals for 2019-2020 from the Israel Engagement Grants Fund (September 1, 2019 – August 31, 2020). The fund’s purpose is to provide grants for programs that strengthen Israel engagement via cultural programming. Funds can be used to bring in Israeli performers and artists and/or to create Israel-themed programs that include music, film, arts, dance, literature, lectures, theater, etc. Priority will be given to requests that are open to the community and that demonstrate artistic, educational and/or cultural value for the community. Submission of a proposal does not guarantee funding.
The deadline to submit a proposal is Wednesday, July 31, 2019.
