Grant Parameters

Apply for the Fall of 2021

Jewish day schools, congregational schools, Hebrew high school programs, youth groups, and (new!) Jewish college programs may apply for a program grant of $5,000 (we recommend half for staffing and half for materials) for fall, or for a grant of $10,000 for fall and spring (8 teen sessions and 8 intergenerational sessions).

Funded schools may also receive Better Together branded video cards (valued at $30/each) for each senior citizen in the program. Video cards look like greeting cards, but have an LCD screen inside with a play button. Video cards can be re-loaded with new videos on an ongoing basis.

Organizations will commit to the following: 

  • Minimum # of students: 10

  • Minimum # of seniors: 1 for every 2 students

  • Minimum # of preparatory lessons with students: 4 for fall-only programs; 8 for fall + spring programs
