Grant-making trusts in the Jewish sector

The need for research into grant-making trusts (GMG) has emerged

Ernest Schlesinger

What's in the report:

After a 1997 seminar where representatives of leading communal agencies considered Margaret Harris's paper on the future of the Jewish voluntary sector (Harris 1997), JPR established a four-year programme, Long-term Planning for British Jewry.

The project was designed to provide-through analyses of financial resources, governance, human resources, service and delivery systems and 'market' needs-the first strategic assessment of the UK Jewish voluntary sector. The first of the project's reports, The financial resources of the UK Jewish voluntary sector by Peter Halfpenny and Margaret Reid, was published simultaneously with this one; the need for research into grant-making trusts (GMG) emerged out of the initial findings of that study.
