Each year, Rose Youth Foundation members work together to explore Jewish traditions of giving, identify needs in our community and make grants totaling $60,000 to help address those needs.

The 2018-2019 Rose Youth Foundation Request for Proposal will open early December 2018 and close late January 2019. The funding priority changes each year of the program, and is not yet determined. If you have questions about Rose Youth Foundation’s funding priorities, contact Emily Kornhauser, Initiatives Manager at ekornhauser@rcfdenver.org or 303.398.7417. If you have questions about the online grants portal, contact Kelli Rojas, Grants Manager, at krojas@rcfdenver.org or 303.398.7446.
