Funding Interests: Jewish Life

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.
