Apply for Funding

The Emily Georges Gottfried Fund was founded to remember Emily’s work and to honor the relationships she developed over a lifetime of interaction with people of many beliefs and backgrounds. The Fund provides support to projects where an organization seeks to create dialogue among individuals and organizations representing communities with different religions, beliefs, customs, or traditions The ultimate goal of this dialogue is mutual understanding and respect, hopefully leading to action that improves the lives of all involved. The fund stands for justice, equality and the importance of open dialogue—the guiding principles of Emily’s life’s work.

We encourage your organization to think creatively about ways to talk, work, learn and create with other communities. We’re happy to talk with you any time about how we can support your efforts.
