The application process is super quick and easy (only 7 questions)!  


The Making Jewish Places (MJP) microgrants are an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta and are awarded to projects that impact residents in the Alpharetta/Johns Creek community. These programs should inspire engagement and participation in Jewish life in Alpharetta/Johns Creek and take place in this area.

We want to help you see and realize Jewish possibilities in the Alpharetta/Johns Creek community. 

We are looking for you – if you are an individual, a neighborhood, an HOA, a Scout Troop, a supper/book/mahjong/poker club –­ this grant opportunity is for you! We will also consider applications from organizations who want to bring Jewish programming to the Alpharetta/Johns Creek community.

Funding decisions are made by a Federation led MJP committee, individuals in the Alpharetta/Johns Creek Jewish community who are passionate about Jewish impact and engagement. Grantees will be notified via email.

Requirements and How to Apply

Making Jewish Places microgrants provides grants that serve the Alpharetta/Johns Creek Jewish community. A project will be considered only once per calendar year, though an organization or individual can apply for more than one project within a calendar year.

We encourage anyone who has an idea to apply, whether you come from a large organization, small organization, or no organization at all (you don’t have to be a 501(c)3). Please note that the MJP microgrant does not fund political campaigns, capital campaigns, or endowments.

Applications and awards are accepted and awarded on a rolling basis, ranging from $500-$2500.
