Are you a donor interested in funding programs or organizations serving intermarried couples, families, or individuals from those families? Do you want your funding leveraged dollar for dollar? Then this webinar is for you.

JFN and the Genesis Prize Foundation's Avenues to Jewish Engagement for Intermarried Couples and their Families Matching Grant Initiative in honor of 2015 Genesis Prize Laureate Michael Douglas offers $1.65 million in matching grant funds to organizations and projects that support and enhance avenues to Jewish engagement for intermarried couples and their families. This webinar will cover everything you need to know in order to apply for matching funds.

The Genesis Prize honors individuals who have attained excellence and international renown in their chosen professional fields, and who inspire others through their engagement and dedication to the Jewish community and the State of Israel. On June 18, in Jerusalem, Michael Douglas received this prestigious award and announced that the prize money, along with a generous donation from businessman and philanthropist Roman Abramovich, will be used to promote activities that encourage the inclusion of intermarried families in Jewish life. 

This comprehensive webinar will cover:

  • Goals of the initiative
  • Eligibility guidelines for donors
  • Timeline
  • Your questions

JFN’s past matching grants initiatives have generated over $90 million to support Jewish education, services for the Jewish elderly poor, advocacy and environmental protection in Israel, and more. We encourage you to learn more about this venture and ask questions during this one-hour informational webinar.
