Transform Your Board’s Leadership and Governance

Welcome to Project Accelerate

Project Accelerate builds the capacity of high performing, innovative, small and mid-sized organizations in the Jewish community that are poised to enter a new stage of growth and development. Project Accelerate is a two-year cohort-based program that offers training seminars, mentoring, and peer support to strengthen the skills of the organizations’ senior leadership. The program also offers consulting and challenge grants towards building organizational infrastructure.
Project Accelerate was created in 2014 to offer capacity building support to strong, mission-driven organizations in the Jewish community that need to build their infrastructure to support growth. We believe that investment in capacity building enables dynamic organizations to grow, scale, and deepen their impact on the Jewish community.

Program Details


The fourth cohort of the program will begin in Fall 2021 and will be 24 months in duration.
Project Accelerate provides organizations with the below:

Educational seminars for senior leaders that emphasize networking and peer learning.
Skills building online courses focusing on board development, marketing, and fundraising.

Peer network support during the program and beyond.

Grants Opportunities include:

  • A challenge grant to support a capacity building project central to the mission of the organization via a 1:2 match of between $150,000 and $250,000. For example, if approved, the foundation will arrange for the funding of $250,000 if the organization raises $500,000 thus leveraging a total of $750,000 for your organization over the two years.
  • A consulting grant for outside consulting to strengthen critical areas of the organization. After undergoing an in-depth analysis of all capacities, each organization can apply to receive a grant for a consulting project according to the needs identified by your organization.

We believe that investing in these elements will provide organizations with the capacity to continue to innovate and change, as well as the stability that is so vital for growth and development.
