Gaia Fund focuses on San Francisco programs that foster and strengthen the connection of
Jews to their heritage and community, in the interest of ensuring the relevance and continuity
of the Jewish tradition.
The Fund considers requests for initiatives that enrich
the experience of Judaism, with a focus on promoting an appreciation of Jewish history,
art, and culture.
Geographic emphasis is placed on programs serving the Jewish community of the City
of San Francisco. The Fund may, on occasion, make grants for regional or national
initiatives if they are judged to have a particular local relevance. The Fund does
not consider requests for initiatives based overseas, for programs that provide
direct social services, or for Holocaust-related projects.
