After over a year of planning, our new Teen Board begins operation in October. Over 50 applications were received for 25 teen board member positions from Jewish high school students. The Teen Board will meet monthly throughout the academic year to learn about philanthropy and grantmaking. The Teen Board is affiliated with the Jewish Teen Funders Network Foundation Board Incubator, and is funded, in part, by Laura Lauder and the Maimonides Fund. Teens will select specific problem areas in which to fund their grantmaking and will award $50,000 in grants annually through an RFP process.
