Each year, Hazon allocates a portion of the funds raised through our bike rides and other sources to grantee organizations. Most of these grantees are up-and-coming environmental organizations that are able to do a great deal of good with a small grant.
Past grants have included:
- The down payment on the Adamah house and continuing support of the program
- Funding for a garden at Camp Na’aleh, which now provides produce to the camp kitchen
- The Israel Bike Association, which promotes active transportation in Israel
- Roof gardens, solar panels, and other green upgrades to Jewish institutional buildings
With the help of local funders, Hazon provides small grants to kickstart innovative Jewish environmental projects in specific communities. Grants are currently available in Boulder and Denver, CO.
A portion of the proceeds from the New York Ride supports small projects and organizations that are building a healthier and more sustainable Jewish community. In order to be eligible, your organization must bring a team of at least four riders.
To learn more about how you can apply for funding for your environmental project, visit our Team Partnership Grants page.
With the generous support of the Rose Community Foundation, 18 Pomegranates, and the Oreg Foundation, Hazon is able to provide grants to inspire and grow a range of Jewish outdoor, food and/or environmental education (JOFEE) programs in the Denver/Boulder area. There are two grant opportunities in Colorado:
- Mini-Grants: Each year we grant up to $20,000 to organizations and individuals to seed new JOFEE programs and grow existing JOFEE programs. This is an annual funding cycle and applications are accepted and grants are awarded in the summer.
- Food Audit Grants: We provide $250 grants to Jewish organizations that have taken the Hazon Food Audit and want to make improvements to their food practices. Applications are accepted year-round.
