Three JewishColumbus Foundation funds will address current and emerging needs in Columbus, South America and Israel.  

The National Council of Jewish Women, Columbus Section was awarded a $5,000 Social Justice grant for their inaugural Back-to-School Pop-Up Store to ensure that under-priviledged elementary school students start the school year with new backpacks, shoes, clothes, coats, supplies and a book.  

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee was awarded $23,000 for humanitarian crisis needs in South America.  Additionally, Dualis, an Israeli nonprofit organization that directs philanthropic investments to social enterprise efforts was awarded a $20,000 Melvyn Palius Israel Environmental Fund grant.  Dualis will use these funds for an environmental program in Israel engaging youth with special needs to reduce paper usage at corporate businesses by providing scanning and data entry services.
