Slingshot Fellowship

Experience a one-of-a-kind, customized program to equip young Jewish philanthropists with the leadership skills, philanthropic tools, and network they need to deepen their impact on Jewish life. 


What We Offer

The Slingshot Fellowship is an 18 month program that includes three retreats with other young Jewish philanthropists and monthly webinars with top professionals. Fellows will develop technical philanthropic skills and build relationships with influential leaders in philanthropy, the Jewish community and beyond. (Retreats will take place virtually until the public health situation permits safe in-person gathering.)
