This is the moment many nonprofit organizations within North and South Carolina have been waiting for, the 2018 BJH Foundation Grant application is available online at our newly revised website.

BJH Foundation puts its emphasis in 2 major areas for funding programs for Jewish adults; best practices and socialization programs.

Best practices programs include: Case Management with a psychologist or social worker, Congregational Nurse, Dementia or memory impairment enrichment, Group Day Care and Respite programs, New and Innovative programs.

Socialization programs include: Community Building, Education and furtherance of Jewish values, Dementia or memory impairment enrichment, Food Distribution, New and Innovative programs, Transportation.

We encourage you to let other nonprofit organizations working with the Jewish adult population know they could be eligible for a grant.

Don’t forget to bookmark the website as there will be updates with useful information throughout the year. The “Library of Resources and Articles” page will continually grow, containing useful information about many topics.

If you are in Guilford county and want more information about the adult population you could visit Senior Resources of Guildford, http://www.senior-resources-guilford.org. This organization is very helpful in connecting people to various services and programs.

Another organization providing interesting activities and information is Shepherd’s Center of Greensboro, http://www.shepctrg.org.

Of course, you will always find programs and resources at Jewish Family Services of the Greensboro Jewish Federation, Temple Emanuel and Beth David Synagogue.

In order for BJH Foundation to continue to enhance life for Jewish adults we need feedback from you. We encourage all of you to think about the life you envision in your retirement years. What are some of the ways you may need assistance? What are some of your social and educational areas of interest? Where do you envision yourself living as you gracefully age? These are just a few of the questions the BJH Foundation Board tries to answer each year when awarding grants.

Of course it is important to note we always welcome contributions. Growing the balance of our funds invested with the Jewish Foundation of Greensboro allows greater amounts of money to be allocated each year as grant awards.
