Through this RFP, the Bicentennial Steering Committee will award up to $20,000 in new grants to organizations addressing the wide array of contributions Cincinnati's Jewish community has made to the City of Cincinnati, this Country, and beyond.
The Bicentennial Committee is raising funds to allocate to organizations looking to partner and lead programs and experiences for the Jewish Cincinnati Bicentennial (to be celebrated between Fall 2021 - Fall 2022). Proposals will be received during (2) two Rounds, Round 1: proposals received by February 2021 for projects beginning before February 2022, and Round 2: proposals received by September 2021 for projects beginning after February 2022.
This grant can support the establishment of new programs or the enhancement of existing initiatives. Selected grantees will receive a one-time grant between $500 - $2,500 intended to be matched in part, by the requesting organization. All funds should be used by November 30, 2022. Funding is intended for application towards specific project or program-based costs.
*ALL FUNDS MUST BE UTILIZED IN FULL BY NOVEMBER 30, 2022
If you have any questions about whether your Project/Event meets the funding criteria and requirements, please send an email to Marie Krulewitch-Browne, at Bicentennial@jfedcin.org with a short summary of the project you have in mind.
We look forward to hearing from you!
