Innovative Jewish Nonprofits Selected

Fifty of the most innovative Jewish nonprofits in North America have been named in the 2007-2008 edition of the Slingshot guidebook. Compiled and published by 21/64, a division of The Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies, the annual guidebook celebrates programs, organizations and leaders that take innovative approaches to addressing age-old concerns of identity and community in Jewish life today.

According to

It was created to survey the landscape of Jewish nonprofits for donors interested in giving to more revolutionary organizations, including the Foundation for Jewish Camping and the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, D.C. Other L.A.-based nonprofits included were MAZON, the Jewish Television Network and Progressive Jewish Alliance.

Inspired by the annual guidebook, a group of prominent, young Jewish funders has established the Slingshot Fund, which will support organizations featured in Slingshot each year with capacity-building grants.
