About The Bronfman Fellowships Alumni Venture Fund

Launched in 2005, the Bronfman Alumni Venture Fund (AVF) is the first Jewish Fellowship program to fundraise from their alumni for the sole purpose of re-distributing that funding to alumni-led projects. As of early 2014, the AVF has distributed over $170,000 in grants as well as valuable peer support to impactful projects led by over 100 alumni.

The AVF supports projects and programs led by BYFI and Amitei Bronfman alumni working to make an impact in their communities. Eligible projects should reflect the spirit of BYFI and may draw on BYFI’s core values: Jewish learning, pluralism, engagement with Israel, and social responsibility. Projects are chosen by the BYFI Alumni Advisory Board and the Israeli VA’AD, volunteer representatives of the alumni community. Grants are funded through donations from alumni and their families, and are awarded annually. The AVF provides alumni-led projects with financial assistance as well as other forms of PR and support.

The Bronfman Fellowships Alumni Venture Fund runs a sophisticated fundraising campaign, and especially prides itself on cultivating the grantwriting skills of applicants.
