Jewish Helping Hands Tikkun Olam Grant Program

Jewish Helping Hands launched its Tikkun Olam Grant program in 2012 to advance their goal of inspiring and supporting tzedakah, justice and righteousness, throughout the world.

Their goal is to help vulnerable populations in the United States and abroad through a variety of programs focused on economic development and social empowerment, with a particular focus on those demographics that have been overlooked and/or marginalized.

In cooperation with local communities, JHH supports programs that are sustainable and scalable through financial and hands-on support. Their objective is to promote organizations and projects that will make a tangible and lasting difference in the lives of the populations they serve. With each of their grants, JHH also intends to share its experience and expertise, so as to help further their joint mission.


  • Tikkun Olam Grants are awarded annually. A typical grant award may be up to $5,000.
  • Grant recipients may reapply to have their grants renewed one time. Organizations can apply for additional grants for new projects.
