Grants to assist disabled, disadvantaged, neglected and abused Jewish children aged up to 18 worldwide.
Jewish Child's Day
Jewish Child's Day (JCD) was founded in 1947 to give Jewish children and their families in Britain the opportunity to help children in Europe whose lives had changed dramatically in the aftermath of the Second World War.
Traditionally, Jewish Child's Day was one day of the year, the first Sunday of Chanukah, but now JCD operates throughout the year.
Objectives of Fund
JCD aims to assist disabled, disadvantaged, neglected and abused Jewish children worldwide.
Grants are normally in the range of £500 to £5,000.
Applications can only be made once a year.
Who Can Apply
Registered charities are eligible to apply.
