Weissman Arts Endowment Grant Program

Through a generous legacy gift from Albert and Rhoda Yvette Weissman, the Community Foundation established the Albert Weissman & Rhoda Yvette Weissman Endowment Fund in 2017.  As part of this fund and in honoring their wishes, the Weissman Arts Endowment Grant Program was formed in 2018 with the Weissman Collaborative Grants Committee and Task Force comprised of lay leaders.   This Grant program will provide financial support to arts and arts-related programming in Jewish Orange County made possible through a collaborative grants program of the Jewish Community Foundation Orange County and the Jewish Federation & Family Services of Orange County.


This Grant program is conducted annually and is open to applications from Jewish non-profit organizations in Orange County.  The grant applications are reviewed by the lay leaders who are members of the Weissman Collaborative Grants Committee and Task Force.
