Incubator Grants

The WRJ Incubator Grants initiative was launched in 2015 as a way to inspire and enable “outside the box” programs and provide new ideas for all WRJ sisterhoods. Many of our sisterhoods have big ideas they would like to pursue and share but do not have the resources to create them.

Applications are now closed for the 2019 Incubator Grants. WRJ is allocating Incubator grants of $500-$2,500 to WRJ sisterhoods and women’s groups to fund unique and creative programs that promote one or more of the WRJ 3 Ss: Sisterhood, Spirituality, and Social Good. WRJ is looking specifically for programs that encourage Tikkun Olam, promote Reform Jewish values, create caring communities, and/or cultivate spiritual or personal growth in its participants. Sisterhoods must be in good standing with both WRJ and with their districts. For more information, please read the 2019 Incubator Grant FAQs.

Eligible Incubator Grant programs must take place between March 2019 and March 2020. Grantees must also commit to completing an evaluation form after their program is complete. ​

In 2016, WRJ provided the first round of Incubator Grants to 10 sisterhoods to enable the enacting of new innovative programs. Read more about the 2016 Incubator Grantees here
