Recently, our client Carmei Ha’Ir- a Jerusalem charity caring for the needy with dignity- was awarded $50,000 from the Acharai Fund as a result of an application we submitted.
The Acharai Fund has a unique and wonderfully intimate way of reaching its philanthropic goals. In their words:
Founded in 2011 by 35 families in suburban Philadelphia, the Acharai Fund is a multi-generational giving circle which inspires families to engage together in meaningful Jewish philanthropy. … Families are invited to join Acharai with an annual contribution of $5,000 each. One of the key facets of the Acharai Fund is the involvement of the “next generation.” … An annual optional trip to Israel allows Acharai families to experience first-hand the programs and people we support…We are dedicated to teaching and modeling Jewish philanthropy to our children.
Guilty of committing the unforgivable sin of not updating the blog. We know!
It must be said, however that at the least, the reasons are good ones. We are busy working! And conferencing. And growing and of course, learning.
2K has left for the US and will be working from those shores once settled in. In fact, she’s gracing Gracy Mansion will her presence as we speak- er, type. Mayor Bloomberg has an annual BBQ for Jewish nonprofits- and she’s in attendance.
In great news to announce, two of our clients have received funding this month- a $10K grant for an unbelievable multifaith day camp (lots more to come here!) and a $40K grant for Carmei Ha’Ir toward the purchase of their home! More to come on Carmei soon as well.
