Innovation Fund Announces Grants for Three New Programs


The Innovation Fund – Federation's high-impact grants program that represents a new, forward-thinking philosophy – has announced three new programs joining our community in the coming year.

The programs will receive seed funding by The Innovation Fund and were selected based on criteria established by a request for proposal process. This is a shift from Federation's conventional allocations process.

After careful review and consideration, The Innovation Fund will fund three programs, which will collaborate with Federation's local partner agencies to meet unique and emerging needs in our community.


1. The Palm Beach Jewish Boomer Platform (multi-year grant)

Lead Organization: B3/The Jewish Boomer Platform

Partners: Alpert Jewish Family & Children's Service, MorseLife, Mandel JCC, Friedman Commission for Jewish Education (CJE), community synagogues

Goal: Energize and deepen connections to Jewish life for the baby boomer generation, our community’s largest age demographic.

2. Big Tent Judaism Initiative (multi-year grant)

Lead Organization: Big Tent Judaism/Jewish Outreach Institute

Partners: Mandel JCC, Friedman CJE, and community synagogues
