Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for projects that benefit women and girls. The purpose of this grant program is to effect social change and promote gender equality. Grant funds may be used to support existing or new programs. Eligible applicants must work within the Jewish community.
HF will fund new or existing programs that utilize a gender lens and are designed to create sustainable social change for women and girls in the Jewish community. Organizations may apply independently or in collaboration.
The Hadassah Foundation aims to promote gender equality in positions of power. Programs applying for funding must work within the Jewish community and toward one or more of the following areas:
HF looks for programs that build on the unique strengths, perspectives, and experiences of women and girls. HF recognizes that gender influences people’s needs, causes differing outcomes, and associates with various assumptions and norms. Programs that utilize a gender lens may occur in a gender-specific (girls/women only) and/or multigender environments.
Social change programming focuses on the root causes of problems, working to improve the conditions that lead to inequality. HF seeks to promote solutions to underlying obstacles that impede the full participation of women and girls in society. This approach is unlike direct service programming, which often seeks to ameliorate only the symptoms of societal problems—for example, by providing medicine and treatment for the sick, funds for the poor, or shelters for the homeless and battered. HF is interested in how your program influences and brings about social change in the form of: changing how an issue is defined, changing individuals’ behaviors, increasing community engagement, changing policies and systems and/or maintaining past gains in these areas.
