JBIG (Jewish Baltimore Innovation Grants)

Get a little help to start the next BIG thing in our community. Submit your ideas for strengthening Jewish identity and fostering Jewish community. 

JBIG is a microgrants initiative to help up-and-coming leaders seed, grow and act on new ideas, e.g., social gatherings, Shabbat and holiday experiences, arts and culture programs, and service projects. Individuals and grassroots organizations in Baltimore, Ashkelon and Odessa can submit ideas for grants of up to $1,000. 

The 2017 JBIG application is now closed. If you would like additional information about JBIG, please contact Rebecca Weinstock at rweinstock@associated.org or 410-843-7566.
