Applying for Social Action Fund Grant

Applying for Social Action Fund Grant

The First Narayever raises funds to support exceptional community projects primarily through an appeal made during Yom Kippur. We welcome applications that help to advance our mission:

  1. To address the needs of Toronto’s downtown Jewish community,
  2. To build an Israel consistent with our values of fairness, egalitarianism, environmental responsibility, social justice and fostering peace, and
  3. To build inclusive and just communities by protecting vulnerable populations and supporting communities facing discrimination or anti-Semitism.

Yom Kippur Social Action funding is available either as a:

(1) One-Year Grant of up to $15,000; and

(2) Three-Year Grant of up to $10,000 per year over a three-year period

Applicants seeking funding for three-years must clarify their proposed use of the funds over the three year period.  Unique three-year projects are encouraged and annual progress reports are required.

The Social Action Fund Grants from Yom Kippur 2019 have been completed and distributed. Check back after Yom Kippur 2019 for information about the next grant cycle.
