The Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence (JHFE) seeks to fund organizations and programs that support our vision of Louisville as a city whose youth are mentally and physically healthy, thriving, and fully engaged in community.
Funding focus areas
Program support: Adolescents have equitable access to a variety of high-quality, effective programs to improve mental, physical, social, and emotional wellness.
Organization support: Local adolescent-serving organizations partner with youth and families to deliver highly effective programs and work collaboratively to identify and address unmet need.
