JEWISHcolorado is awarding grants to more than 30 Jewish nonprofits and schools as part of the organization’s annual Projects of Impact & Need (PIN) grants program. Grants for the 2022 fiscal year fund nonprofit program operations, outreach and engagement, social justice, advocacy and education efforts, human service and mental health projects, and Jewish day schools.
