Overview 

The Making Jewish Places (MJP) microgrants are an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta and are awarded to projects that impact residents and Jewish life in the Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Roswell, and East Cobb communities.

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 North Fulton community.

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

Requirements and How to Apply

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. 

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-$5000.
