Helping Los Angeles Jewish Nonprofits Thrive

As the leader in charitable giving services for Jewish philanthropists in Los Angeles, the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles launched the Next Stage Grants pilot in 2017 to help Jewish organizations and institutions in the region build their capacity and increase their effectiveness. The Foundation designed and launched the pilot with four organizations, offering funding of up to $250,000 over a two- to three-year period, a semi-structured approach and space for grantees to engage with The Foundation in testing and learning.

The Foundation partnered with Engage R+D to help design the pilot, coach the Next Stage grantees, and summarize the learnings in this report.
