Grant Information

Grant Program


The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s South Hills Community Engagement Initiative (South Hills Jewish Pittsburgh) is pleased to provide support for projects that reflect our organization’s vision of a vibrant, interconnected, inspired and engaged South Hills Jewish Community. A successful application will demonstrate the proposed project’s ability to create opportunities for Jewish individuals living in the South Hills to connect with each other and community agencies, resulting in more Jews doing more Jewish in the South Hills.


Have an idea for a program or activity that will strengthen our community? We encourage you to contact your institution’s leadership with your thoughts and suggestions, or contact us with any comments or questions.


Larger grants ($2,000-$5,000) will be awarded primarily to institutions and organizations,  however, individuals can also apply for a micro grant (up to $500) for programs/events such as community Shabbat dinners, book clubs, holiday celebrations, speakers, etc…
