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.

2018-19 Rose Youth Foundation request for proposals is now open

In spring of 2019, Rose Youth Foundation will make grants totaling $60,000 to support immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers in the Greater Denver Community. Grants will fund programs that welcome newcomers, help them achieve economic self-sufficiency and bridge cultural divides between welcoming and receiving communities.

Nonprofit organizations that serve immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers are invited to respond to this request for proposals. Up to $60,000 is available to grant and it is anticipated that grants will be awarded that range from $10,000 to $20,000. Because funds are limited, it is anticipated that not all applicants will receive funding.

Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, January 22, 2019 through Rose Community Foundation’s online grants portal. You can access the portal here or at rcfdenver.org/login. You will need to create or log into an existing account to view and complete the grant application.

The Rose Youth Foundation 2018-2019 Request for Proposals is provided as a resource to help you prepare your proposal.
