Four innovative programs received the latest Propel Innovation Grants from the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta. The nonprofit announced $100,000 in grants to organizations and entrepreneurs serving the community and meeting its “evolving needs.” The grant recipients include:
• A film highlighting and documenting the history of the Atlanta Jewish community during COVID-19;
• Trybal Gatherings, an overnight camp for millennials;
• Be’chol Lashon, which will offer diversity training and facilitate conversations about race and identity in a Jewish context; and
• The Jewish Fertility Foundation to support a growing number of single moms by choice and an increase in multi-faith couples using JFF’s emotional support services and receiving JFF fertility grants.
Since last year, Federation Innovation has awarded $500,00 in similar grants, intended to ignite innovation in the Jewish community.
