We Empower Changemakers
Ignite new Jewish ideas with significant, early stage grant funding
Grow personal skills and community connections through experiences and mentorship
Celebrate our impact and the visionary leaders that make it possible
We are fired up by the talent and wisdom that already resides in our community, and we love what happens when generations come together to share their life experiences. Wisdom Pairings, our mentorship community, brings people together for meaningful conversations that can blossom into ongoing relationships. We know that when someone else understands your idea, and can help enable it, your spark can become a fire! And we’re proud that Wisdom Pairings has helped people take bold personal steps forward, broaden their skillsets and find new career paths.
We are also grant makers, providing different levels of funding to help new ideas take flight.
Federation Innovation is shaped and steered by a fascinating and eclectic group of people who are all high-level thinkers, doers, and innovators themselves! We’re always looking for people who might want to share their time and talent with us.
Federation Innovation Think Tanks support the core areas of our impact:
– IGNITE members evaluate grant applications and interview changemakers to help us determine early-stage grant funding.
– GROW members support personal skill building and community connections through direct mentorship.
– CELEBRATE members elevate and amplify our team’s storytelling.
