Community Action Funds Support Greater Hartford’s Jewish Community Forever

By entrusting the Foundaton’s Trustees with the ability to award grants, you can rest assured we will maximize the impact of your Fund based on the community’s evolving needs — for generations to come.
These funds allowed the Foundation to grant $800,000, in partnership with Federation, to help our Jewish community during COVID.

How Community Action Funds Work
Gifts to Community Action Funds are pooled together to create our annual Community Grants Program. Organizations apply to JCF for grants for new programming, capacity-building and emerging needs, which are reviewed by our expert staff, Grants Committee, and Board of Trustees. Grants are awarded where they are most needed.
“As times change, the needs of our communities are better served by a collective organization such as the Jewish Community Foundation. I feel comfortable knowing that if an emergency occurs in our community, JCF will be there as a source of help.”
