Grant Cycle

Jewish Home of Cincinnati will accept Letters of Inquiry (LOI) and grants in early winter, 2022. We are currently in the research and development stage to refine our giving interests for maximum impact.

Initially, our focus will be one-year requests, but as our foundation evolves, so will our process. The length of time between LOI and grants will be 12 months. Should a LOI or grant be declined, the nonprofit is encouraged to reapply at the next LOI cycle.

Eligibility Criteria:
