As the prime funder of Youth activities in the UK, the UJIA provide core funding for mainstream Jewish youth movements, covering rent and staff salaries, whilst the JYF is able to fund small specific items for the youth movements eg leadership training and other youth organisations that may not receive support from UJIA.

Grant Criteria for Winter 2021 Only

Winter 2021 is going to be unique. Our criteria reflect this:

  • Applicants must have received a grant from The Jewish Youth Fund in the last five years.
  • Applicants will therefore be organisations, groups or clubs which are UK registered charities whose beneficiaries are of the Jewish faith in the United Kingdom.
  • Applicants must provide positive informal educational experiences and/or recreation opportunities for young people of the Jewish faith within the UK, defined as those aged 9-21 in an informal setting.
  • Grants will only be given if there is confidence that Child Protection, Health & Safety, Data Protection and other relevant policies are in place and being applied consistently.
  • Support for leadership training will be based on a per capita basis, taking into consideration the numbers of young people who attend the programme for whom leaders are being trained.
  • Applicants can apply for grants worth £1,000 – £10,000.
  • Applications are still encouraged from Jewish organisations with projects for young people with disabilities, who have a long-term illness, special educational needs or are considered to belong to at-risk groups (e.g. NEETs).
  • The JYF will not consider applications for large capital grants at this time.
