Day School Microgrants

Each year The Jewish Education Project offers Microgrants to Day Schools in the Greater New York City area (New York City, Westchester, and Long Island) to support moving innovative ideas from thought to action. We offer up to $2,500 in grants to each awardee. 

THESE GRANTS IGNITE IDEAS AND HELP TURN THEM INTO REALITY OFTEN MAKING A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON THE INSTITUTION. 

 

You may apply for a Day School Microgrant between $500 and $2,500.
