JTConnect Receives Springboard Grant
Jewish Teen Learning Connection (JTConnect), which demonstrated impressive growth in the last few years, was awarded a three-year Springboard grant of $120,000. The grant is being used to support a second staff member at JTConnect, allowing Executive Director Eric Maurer to spend more time working on fundraising, board development and engagement and strategic planning. “Growing our programming and strengthening our operation would not be possible if it weren’t for the Foundation’s Springboard grant,” says Eric.

When JTConnect suspended in-person programming in March 2020 due to COVID-19, it launched virtual hangouts for teens to stay connected and – as you can see from the photo above – its programming did not miss a beat.
