The Jerusalem Fund for Education & Community Development: Grants Program to Provide Humanitarian Assistance to Palestinians

Presentation :

The Jerusalem Fund for Education and Community Development is an independent, registered 501c3 nonprofit. It aims to foster greater awareness about Palestine, in the United States and abroad, and to ameliorate the lives of Palestinians in Palestine and the diaspora. The Fund accomplishes these goals through three programs: the Humanitarian Link raises funds to provide relief, medical services, and community development support; the Palestine Center hosts educational and policy analysis lectures and conferences in the DC area and disseminates information online; and the cultural arm features an active art gallery called Gallery Al-Quds, a film series, and musical and literary offerings.

Mission :

The Jerusalem Fund extends grants to non-governmental organizations providing humanitarian assistance to Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem, and to Palestinian refugees in Syria and Lebanon. The Jerusalem Fund supports projects focusing on emergency relief, education, health, infrastructure and other community development efforts. The Fund also supports projects that help Palestinians highlight their history and struggle to Western audiences.
