As nonprofits scramble in a tough economy,
the Jewish Fund announces 20 grants
for health-related programs.

7

he Jewish Fund is making
$757,500 in grants avail-
able for' 20 health-related
programs, the majority of
which will benefit the local Jewish
community.
The total grants approved Aug. 19
are slightly lower than last year, a
result of the floundering economy.
"In these difficult times, nonprof-
its need to be especially creative in
trying new approaches to serving
their clients — to rethink the way
they do their business," said Jewish
Fund Chairman Mark Schlussel.
"The Jewish Fund is a resource for
such efforts.
"We area source of venture capi-
tal, if you will. We will provide seed
funding to help organizations test
bold, innovative ideas. We have to
be willing to take some risks."
One new initiative features match-
ing funds to help local synagogues
buy Automated External
Defibrillators (AEDs). The Sinai
Guild is joining the Jewish Fund in
this effort, with each organization
authorizing up to $38,000 to help
buy up to 30 AEDs. The fund and
guild will administer the program
with the assistance of community
volunteers.
"This initiative epitomizes what
the Jewish Fund is all about,"
Schlussel said. "Our grant funds and
leadership efforts will provide state-
of-the art equipment and training
and mobilize community resources
to help save lives."
The Jewish Fund also will partner
with Sinai-Grace Hospital to help
purchase AEDs for Federation mem-
ber agencies.
In keeping with its mission to sup-
port vulnerable populations, more
than one-third of the August grants
will benefit the frail elderly.
One of the leading causes of acci-
dents and premature institutionaliza-
tion of the elderly is falls. A two-year
$130,000 grant to the Jewish
Apartments and Services will help
reduce the incidence of fall-related
injuries by apartment residents. The
Commission on Jewish Eldercare

Services (COJES) and the University
of Michigan Geriatrics Center will
work together with JAS staff to pro-
vide individualized plans and assis-
tance for each resident.
Jewish Fund support also will help
Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital expand
its new Kreiger Geriatric Center to
provide on-site health and wellness
services at the Fleischman,
Hechtman and Meer Jewish
Apartments on the Applebaum
