Award Given for Organizations that are “Transforming the World”

Special for the AJT

The Slingshot Fund recognized the Jewish Kids Groups as one of the most innovative Jewish organizations in North America. Slingshot, which identifies organizations that are transforming the world in novel and interesting ways, made the announcement Monday in its 10th annual “Slingshot Guide.”

The award is a huge honor for JKG, who said that it signifies they have arrived.

“With Slingshot’s endorsement, we’re poised to bring our ridiculously cool Jewish education model to even more kids.” Said JKG in a press release, “JKG was selected by professionals with expertise in grant-making and Jewish communal life. In other words, we are no longer a scrappy start-up (but don’t worry, we’ll still maintain our start-up charm).”

JKG will now have increased recognition and support as the Slingshot Guide has become a go-to resource for volunteers, activists and donors looking for organizations to support. JKG will also be free to think outside the box even more.

“There’s nothing like a ‘most innovative’ label to inspire us to think even bigger and bolder.” They said, “As JKG continues to grow, so do our ideas!”
