How to Grant

 

Making a grant to a Canadian registered charity through your Fund is an easy process, and the Jewish Foundation team is always here to help.
 

Grant recommendations must be made in writing and can be sent through email, fax or mail.
 

We may contact you if we have any questions about your recommendation.
 

Once we have verified the organization’s charitable status and completed other due diligence work, we will issue the cheque and send it to the organization along with a letter. Unless you request otherwise, the letter will include the name of your Fund, how the grant money is to be used and ask that correspondence be forwarded to you, care of our offices.
 

All grants are generally approved on a monthly basis.
