Israel, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, West Bank and Gaza
Set up in 1977, the Jerusalem Fund for Education & Community Development is a non-profit organisation that aims to foster greater awareness about Palestine, in the United States and abroad, and to ameliorate the lives of Palestinians in Palestine and the diaspora. The Fund accomplishes these goals through three programs: (1) the Humanitarian Link raises funds to provide relief, medical services, and community development support; (2) the Palestine Center hosts educational and policy analysis lectures and conferences in the DC area and disseminates information online; and (3) the cultural arm features an active art gallery called Gallery Al-Quds, a film series, and musical and literary offerings.
The Jerusalem Fund extends grants to non-governmental organisations providing humanitarian assistance to Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem, and to Palestinian refugees in Syria and Lebanon. It supports projects focusing on emergency relief, education, health, infrastructure and other community development efforts. The Fund also supports projects that help Palestinians highlight their history and struggle to Western audiences.
Eligible for funding are international and national non-profit organisations involved in their programmatic focus areas.
Assistance is to target Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem, and to Palestinian refugees in Syria and Lebanon.
Typical grant awards range from $1,000 to $5,000.
