OJCF Endowment Fund Grant Cycle for Fiscal Year 2024

Portland, Oregon – June 2024

The Oregon Jewish Community Foundation (OJCF) supports vital and impactful community
organizations and initiatives in Oregon and SW Washington through its Community
Endowment Fund (CEF). For Fiscal Year 2024, OJCF awarded grants from the CEF to seed
innovative and collaborative organizations and programs in Oregon and SW Washington
that remove or lower the barriers to Jewish participation identified in the community study
commissioned by the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland. OJCF’s vision is that the
proposals funded with CEF dollars will serve immediate needs and help build the
community fabric of Oregon and SW Washington.
CEF grants were awarded to 27 of the 47 applications received. Distributions from the CEF
for fiscal year 2024 totaled approximately $257,000.00 with an average grant size of
approximately $9,500.00. The CEF grants will support communities in Clackamas County,
Clark County, Deschutes County, Lane County, Lincoln County, Linn County, Multnomah
County, and Washington County.
OJCF is pleased to support our community’s organizations in developing programming for
Jewish teen philanthropy, education (Holocaust, Hebrew, Jewish, Financial), arts and
culture, services for marginalized communities, regional security, and Jewish engagement
that will sustain the Jewish community for today and tomorrow.
