Project Chessed, a program of Jewish
Family Service of Metropolitan Detroit,
has been named one of the nation's
50 most innovative Jewish nonprofits
in Slingshot '09/10, a resource guide
for Jewish innovation.
Since 2005, Slingshot has iden-
tifyied pathfinding and trailblazing
organizations grappling with concerns
in Jewish life such as identity, commu-
nity, tradition and basic needs.
Project Chessed was chosen by a
panel of 36 foundation profession-
als from across North America. This
was its third consecutive year being
featured in Slingshot. It was also the
second consecutive year that Project
Chessed was designated as one of only
10 organizations to receive a capac-
ity building grant from the Slingshot
Fund, a collective giving mechanism to
support innovative Jewish life.
The grant was announced by
Slingshot investor Ariella Lis. Ariella,
a native Detroiter, lives in Boston and
frequently commutes to New York to
take an active role in the Slingshot
Leadership in Philanthropy Program. In
her remarks, Lis cited the importance
of healing in Jewish tradition and the
work of Project Chessed in bringing
healing to so many who are uninsured

The citation reads, in part: "Project
Chessed has been a miraculous part-
nership among hundreds of doctors and
hospitals, which is a completely new
model for the uninsured ... This is the
right thing to do until this country sees
caring for all as a priority ... Slingshot
hopes to highlight this model so that it
is replicated all over the country."
After the conference, Karen Sosnick
Schoenberg, chair of the Project
Chessed Advisory Council, said,
"Slingshot exposes us to a vibrant fund-
ing community, a valuable vehicle as we
work to grow our capacity and take our
programming to the next level."
According to Will Schneider, the
director of Slingshot, "2010 was the
most competitive year that Slingshot
has experienced. Not only are there
a greater number of applicants each
year, but the extent and complexity of
each applicant's impact has increased.
"In order to receive a grant from
the Slingshot Fund, not only did these
ten organizations have to pass the
rigorous evaluation process to get
into Slingshot '09/10, but were then
vetted, interviewed, and analyzed by
30 next-generation members of the
Slingshot Fund."
