The Jewish Teen Funders Network (JTFN) is excited to announce a new initiative, the Foundation Board Incubator. The JTFN Foundation Board Incubator, funded by Laura Lauder and the Maimonides Fund, will establish up to 10 new deeply rooted Jewish teen foundations in major cities around the world by 2016. The JTFN Foundation Board Incubator will accept three cohorts and will work closely with these communities, providing substantial educational and financial resources, for up to five years to ensure program sustainability.
These high commitment, community based programs attract teens with varying levels of current engagement who work together to develop a mission, fundraise, evaluate grant proposals, and allocate real money for real change. Jewish youth philanthropy programs range from those that work with individuals to those that focus on group grant making; programs that are housed in camps, synagogues, and community organizations. While programs employ a variety of methods and structures, best practices from the field have emerged and the Foundation Board Incubator seeks to utilize those learnings to create new programs, to add to the field of successful youth philanthropy programs. The incubator will focus on introducing programs that have the potential to grow to multiple boards in one city, that engage a diverse group of teens, and that will become ingrained in their communities.
We invite professionals, lay leaders, and potential funding partners to join and learn more.
