Jerusalem Fund for Education and Community Development

The Jerusalem Fund for Education and Community Development is an independent, registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit. It 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: the Humanitarian Link raises funds to provide relief, medical services, and community development support; the Palestine Center hosts educational and policy analysis lectures and conferences in the DC area and disseminates information online; and the cultural arm features an active art gallery called Gallery Al-Quds, a film series, and musical and literary offerings.

The Fund also supports projects that help Palestinians highlight their history and struggle to Western audiences.

The Jerusalem Fund supports projects focusing on:
a) Emergency relief,
b) Education,
c) Health,
d) Infrastructure
e) Other community development efforts.

The Jerusalem Fund prioritizes funding for projects that prove immediate impact and long-term viability .
Projects that “continue to give” long after financial assistance from the Jerusalem Fund is dispersed have higher chances of being approved during a grant cycle. For instance: Reusable equipment such as computers, solar panels or hospital equipment, etc.

Funding Information - Typical grant awards range from $1,000 to $5,000.
