Supporting Innovation

Thanks to the generous support of donors, the Jewish Community Foundation has a special envelope available to award annual grants for innovative programs, which will have maximum impact on the local Montreal Jewish community.

The JCF invites applications for a Nova Grant from any local non-profit Jewish communal organization and institution as well as Federation CJA and its affiliated organizations. Nova Grants are designated for programs that have a specific focus within the following three thematic areas:

  • Supporting the vulnerable
  • Jewish identity & culture
  • Institutional strengthening 

A limited number of JCF Nova Grants ranging from $25,000 to $50,000 per program will be made available and allocated on an annual basis for either one-time funding or funding for up to a maximum of 3 (three) years, depending on the nature of the program.
