Louisville Jewish Community Excellence Grants
Jewish Hospital HealthCare Services (JHHS) is the parent company and majority owner of Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare. As a not-for-profit, charitable organization, it must wisely steward its resources to support the health care mission of JHSMH which has earned a reputation for “excellence above all.”
In addition, JHHS is committed to the continued support of the Louisville Jewish community which founded Jewish Hospital and nurtured its growth and development as a premier center for medical excellence.
To that end, we have created the “JHHS Louisville Jewish Community Excellence Grants,” a funding program designed to support charitable organizations that benefit the Jewish community in Louisville and the surrounding area in one of the following focus areas:
- Jewish Culture/Identity
- Human Service
- The primary focus is to provide programmatic support and grants for small capital projects.
Excluded from consideration are requests:
- From organizations outside the Louisville region
- From individuals
- From political organizations
- For multi-year support
Requests for JHHS Louisville Jewish Community Excellence Grants must be submitted in writing using the application form found on this page. A committee of JHHS Board Members appointed by the Chair of the JHHS Board of Directors will review applications on a quarterly basis. Applications must be received by January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1 to be considered for the following quarter.
Applications must be full and complete and will be judged on the merit of the material submitted. Lobbying of individual committee members is discouraged.
All applicants will be notified in writing about funding decisions. Grants may be made in amounts different than what is requested. The decisions of the Funding Committee are final.
