Foundation for Jewish Camp is thrilled to announce that past Cornerstone Fellowship participants are eligible for small grants to create Jewish experiences for their peers and local communities.

The Cornerstone Fellowship is about building leaders and helping camp staff see themselves as Jewish educators. We aim to assist alumni of the program to take their ideas and experience even further,

amplifying Jewishness in their communities, with the support of Cornerstone Alumni Grants.

The grant amounts can vary from idea to idea. We anticipate the average grant will be between $100 and $300 for a one-time program or ongoing event series, though grants could be larger. In some cases, FJC will even help grantees plan the event!

BEFORE proceeding to the application, please review our eligibility guidelines and details about the grant award process on our website :

Foundation for Jewish Camp will use the information on this form to contact you periodically with important updates and information, such as our monthly newsletter.  We respect your privacy and will store your personal information securely. You can unsubscribe at any time.

In addition, we are striving for students to be complete this program with a reinforced ability to discuss Israel as Jews. Students should be empowered to speak up about the relationship between Israel and the Jewish people, as well as continue to learn and ask questions about Israel and Judaism."
