Federation advocates for the entire community in the Georgia General Assembly. This year we successfully raised the ALEF Fund scholarship cap from $58M to $100M, helping families afford high quality Jewish education. State advocacy initiatives worked to protect and increase Medicaid reimbursement for nursing home care. To help our agencies, schools and organizations have even bigger collective impact, Federation supports a community-wide grant writer and community grant evaluator.
Federation offers a broad range of services to the Jewish Atlanta community. A trained community evaluator to help Jewish organizations measure the impact of their programs, a community grant writer, and a community lobbyist to ensure that legislators and policy makers understand a Jewish organization’s position on key issues. Your Federation offers the services of a trained community evaluator to help Jewish organizations measure the impact their programs have in meeting the needs of our community. This saves organizations valuable time and resources, and many use the results of their evaluation process when applying for grants and other funding.
Grant Writing Support
Requesting grants are necessary to keep just about every non-profit operating, yet the process can be complicated if a grant writer is not on staff. As a service to Jewish non-profits throughout Atlanta, your Federation offers community-wide grant writing support through our own grant writer.
Having a lobbyist to ensure that legislators and policy makers understand a Jewish organization’s position on key issues is a luxury most nonprofits cannot afford. By supporting your Federation, you help to provide Jewish nonprofits, such as schools and healthcare service providers, with access to a lobbyist with positive working relationships at the state level. Coordinated through Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, the community-wide lobbyist also works on the entire Jewish community’s behalf to provide a voice on important issues.
