Israel & Overseas Request for Proposals

The Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas is the central coordinating fundraising agency for the Dallas Jewish community. It is the one place where philanthropy, volunteerism and shared commitment come together to make a difference in the community and the world. From hometown to homeland, Federation brings life-saving and life-sustaining care to Jews in need in Dallas and overseas.

The mission of the Federation is to help ensure the continuity of a strong and vibrant Jewish community in Dallas, Israel and throughout the world.

The Federation’s Israel & Overseas Committee is responsible for helping the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas achieve its mission to provide for Jewish communities in need in Israel and in over 70 countries worldwide as well as build a personal connection to the state, land, and people of Israel.

The committee builds awareness of the work of our overseas partner agencies and educates the community about Jewish communities worldwide, engages those with a passion for rescue, relief, and empowerment, and provides missions and long-term travel opportunities to strengthen Jewish identity and build strong, relevant connections around the world.

The Federation has identified three priorities for its work in Israel and Overseas:

  • Jews in Desperate Need
    Supporting initiatives that care for the most vulnerable Jews throughout the world, assist in times of crisis, and ensure a safety net to those who need.
  • Building Jewish Community Infrastructure
    Efforts to secure communities throughout the world, building sustainable communities, revitalizing Jewish life, supporting community resilience (combatting anti-Semitism, BDS, etc.) and more.
  • Leadership Development
    Training and empowering the next generation of Jewish communal leaders through initiatives, immersive experiences, and global connectivity.

The I&O Committee of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas is opening a request for proposals for programs that meet a need or opportunity inside of one of these priorities.

Deadline for application is Wednesday, March 15, 2023.
