Informed by our community's recent demographic study and strategic planning process, JFGI is committed to promoting Jewish educational programming that aims to reach both current members of the Jewish community and those who are not yet connected. One of JFGI's primary strategic focus areas is:
Jewish Learning and Experience: Serve as a resource and facilitator in providing an array of meaningful Jewish educational and learning initiatives, both formal and informal, collaborating with others to address multi-generational needs.
One of the ways JFGI aims to make progress in this strategic focus area is through partnering with community organizations to strengthen the overall landscape of Jewish education in our community and broaden who is connecting with our community through learning. In order to build momentum throughout the community and support educational innovation, JFGI is exciting to announce two grant opportunities for the 2019-2020 academic year: JFGI Education Innovation Grants and JFGI Education Collaboration Grants.
JFGI also recognizes that to provide youth in our community with quality Jewish education, we need to support the professional growth of our educational leaders, teachers, and informal Jewish educators. To that end, we have allocated a limited amount of funds to provide teachers with JFGI Educator Growth Grants to help cover the cost of professional development opportunities outside of those provided by JFGI.
The JFGI Jewish Education Innovation Grant for the 2019-2020 academic year is designed to focus on geographic innovation. The grant parameters are as follows:
The JFGI Education Collaboration Grants focus on promoting synergistic programming that builds community and a sense of belonging among learners of all ages in the Greater Indianapolis Jewish community. The grant parameters are as follows:
