Jewish Foundation for
The Teen Tzedakah Fund was established four years
ago as a joint effort of the Foundation for Jewish
Philanthropies and the Bureau of Jewish Education's
High School for Jewish Studies. This special fund
provides the opportunity for teens in grades 8
through 12 to learn how to become philanthropists in
the Teen Tzedakah program.
Each year a group of approximately twenty teens meet
twice a month from January to April and have the
responsibility to give away $15,000 in grants to any
charities they select. They explore the needs of
both the Jewish and non-Jewish communities through
presentations by agency representatives, site
visits, groups discussions and individual research.
