Jewish Community Response and Impact Fund (JCRIF) Awards $10 Million to 20+ Jewish Organizations

As of July 20, the Jewish Community Response and Impact Fund has made approximately $10 million in grants.  The grants are a mixture of “emergency” and “innovation” grants – trying to address both the immense needs and the real opportunities of the moment.

The loans will be announced in more detail in the future.
