Jim Joseph Foundation Biennial Report | OUR EXPERIENCES INFORM THE ENTIRE FIELD
The Jim Joseph Foundation invests in promising Jewish education grant initiatives. We partner with effective organizations that seek to inspire young people to discover the joy of living vibrant Jewish lives.


As grantees continue to achieve remarkable outcomes, our efforts to share their learnings and to collaborate with other funders increase as well. In the last two years, we have shared important models; hosted webinars for the field; and presented numerous best practices and key findings at relevant conferences.

Technical Assistance

All of this sharing occurs within a grantmaking framework that places a priority on offering technical assistance to grantees. This assistance is designed to help organizations achieve goals deemed to be integral to their future success. Grantees receive assistance in communications and marketing; support for cooperation with other ‘501c3’s; guidance on fundraising; leads on identifying management information systems; and planning – from business to organizational to strategic. Learn more about technical assistance over the last two years.
