Strategic Grantmaking

Our Strategic Grantmaking is Focused on Three Key Areas.

In addition to two powerful mission objectives, JEWISHcolorado makes a significant impact in the community through three key areas of strategic grant making.


We Engage the Next Generation in Being Jewish

We invest in the next generation through value-added community programs that include everything from early childhood education scholarships, to Jewish summer camp, to PJ Library, to a robust Young Adult Department (YAD) that engages 21-45 year olds in how to live, give, and lead Jewishly.

In collaboration with our partner, Colorado Agency for Jewish Education (CAJE), we fund The Joyce Zeff Israel Study Tour (IST), one of the premiere Israel teen trips in the country. IST is the only annual, community-based Israel trip left in the U.S.


We Care for Those Who
are Vulnerable

We raise and distribute dollars locally and globally to help feed the hungry, care for the sick and elderly, and help build a strong and supportive Jewish world.

Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Jewish Family Service Chaplaincy Program
  • Community Nutrition Maintenance Program
  • Joint Distribution Committee


We Support Israel and Advocate for the Jewish World

We are a voice for Israel and Jews around the world. We educate, empower, and connect our local community to the global Jewish community through strategic grant making, programs, and supplemental campaign initiatives.
