Gather Grants

Now more than ever, we all need a way to connect. To feel we belong, to explore, and to grow. Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta is here to bring new possibilities to life and awaken the potential in Atlanta’s Jewish community through the Gather Grant initiative.   

A Gather Grant is a joint initiative between Making Jewish Places, Next Gen and PJ Library Atlanta.  The program provides $180.00 microgrants to individuals in the Atlanta metro area to host a gathering in their community around a designated holiday or initiative.  Last year Federation awarded over 180 grants to individuals across the Atlanta area.
