We invest in creating vibrant and diverse Jewish communities that offer meaningful opportunities to engage.

Rose Community Foundation is committed to grantmaking in support of the region’s Jewish communities. We invest in efforts to encourage a dynamic and inclusive Jewish ecosystem that embraces a myriad of ways to be Jewish and builds enduring community infrastructure to sustain it. We support Jewish efforts seeking to advance social justice by engaging Jewish people and using Jewish values and traditions to respond to key social and economic issues of our time. Read more about the Jewish Life strategy.

Fund for Jewish Nonprofit Resiliency

In Fall 2020, the Foundation established the Fund for Jewish Nonprofit Resiliency, to support local Jewish nonprofits in adapting and responding to the organizational impacts of COVID-19. 100% of contributions will fund grantmaking to bolster Jewish organizations’ financial health and will also support needs identified by the organizations themselves, including technical assistance grants, cohort-based learning and workshops, marketing and storytelling support, and diversity, equity and inclusion training.
