MSCF seeks to fund innovative grant proposals from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations for one-time grants up to $10,000 that fulfill MSCF’s mission to improve health, enhance well-being, or otherwise advance medical care for Minnesota residents. Organizations must be located in one of seven counties of the metro area: Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington Counties. MSCF gives equal consideration to proposals that impact Jewish and non-Jewish communities.

Through the generosity of the Frances & Samuel Finkelstein/Janice Finkelstein Mattison Memorial Fund, one of the grantees may receive funding in the area of: cancer research and education; mental health or cancer treatment; medical ethics and quality assurance; or patient advocacy programs.

We hope you find the information in this section helpful as you determine whether MSCF is a good fit for your organization.

MSCF has moved to an online application system which is a part of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation’s online grant portal. Please click on the link below to access the online grant system where you will find directions on how to log on. Once you log on, you will be able to select the Mount Sinai Community Foundation, where you will be able to determine if your organization is eligible for a MSCF grant. If so, you will be invited to submit an online Letter of Inquiry, which is the first step for prospective applicants in the 2022 grant cycle.

Questions about the grant process should be directed to MSCF Grant Allocation Chair, Jody Rappaport at [email protected]. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact MSCF to discuss their projects prior to submitting an application.  LOI for our 2022 Grant Cycle will be available January 25 2022.
