Starting a new non-profit organization is fraught with a complicated tax status process and infrastructure development. In 2013, the Columbus Jewish Foundation launched a pilot program to help nascent non-profit start-ups by providing training, mentorship, backroom services, help on the path to becoming an independent self- sustaining 501(c)(3) organization, and use of the Foundation’s own 501(c)(3) status to raise tax deductible funds in the process.
Establishing this type of program allows the Foundation to cultivate the most promising ideas of Jewish social entrepreneurs and to help them develop and implement their vision, business focus and capacity. Their innovation can make a lasting and profound impact in our community and beyond.
