The Women’s Auxiliary Foundation for Jewish Aged, a supporting foundation of Jewish Federation of St. Louis, is now accepting applications for its 2021 funding cycle from St. Louis area 501(c)(3) organizations.
Applications will be accepted from a professional employed by a St. Louis non-profit working in collaboration with organizations in the Jewish community. Applicants for new investments are limited to requests of up to $15,000, though smaller grants will be considered as well.
Grant applications are due on May 20, by no later than 11:59 pm.
In light of the increased needs facing older adults as a result of the pandemic, the Board has approved new guidelines for 2021. Submissions this year should have a mission and priority of Jewish elderly in the community at large.
Proposals must address one of the following two areas identified in the needs assessments conducted by the Jewish Federation of St. Louis:
- Use of technology to reduce isolation among older adults; or
- Efforts to support the mental health & emotional well-being of older adults. The Foundation is seeking creative approaches that go beyond clinical (providing therapy) responses to improve mental health and well-being.
To fill out an application, visit JFedSTL.org/Womens-Auxiliary-Foundation. Complete the application named 2021 Women’s Auxiliary Foundation for Jewish Aged.
Established in 2014 through a generous commitment from the Women’s Auxiliary for the Jewish Aged, the Foundation is focused on providing financial support through grants and challenge grants for programs and organizations that ensure the dignity and honor of the Jewish elderly in the St. Louis community.
