International Grantmaking: Complex Challenges for Tikkun Olam

While there are many ways to work to repair the world, when faced with world of grave poverty, hunger, and disease, many of us pursue work in international development. International grantmaking is like other grant making—only harder—and as funders, though we’re led by our hearts, our minds demand that good works be well conceived, effectively implemented and make an impact. In this workshop, three leaders in this field discuss the difficult questions they face, share how their organizations approach the specific challenges of international work, and reflect on what makes it uniquely “Jewish.”
