Each year, The Jewish Fund engages a diverse group of 25 Jewish high school students in grades 10 through 12 who want to make a real difference by learning about philanthropy and becoming grantmakers. Our Teen Board is a youth-led program. Each year, members will decide how they want to engage their Jewish values to improve their community.
At the end of each year, The Jewish Fund Teen Board members will work together to grant $50,000 to both Jewish and secular charities in metro Detroit. The Teen Board is a very real, very substantial demonstration not only of tzedakah and tikkum olam, but of the tremendous social and financial impact that tomorrow’s grant makers can have upon the world today.
