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 JewishJournal.com:
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.
