Noam Stampfer Gemilut Chasadim Fund
Mini-Grant Application Form

The Noam Stampfer Gemilut Chasadim (acts of kindness) Fund was established to give graduates of Portland Jewish Academy the opportunity to receive “mini-grants” for service projects.

Noam Stampfer was a good friend to our school. While a bright intellectual who appreciated scholarship, he was most interested in developing a school environment at PJA that would enhance the values of community, teamwork, honesty, and playful creativity in its students. Noam had faith in youth to know what changes needed to be made to improve our world. Since his sudden death at age 50, Noam’s friends and family have looked to honor his memory in many ways including the establishment of this fund which will help students carry on Noam’s commitment to tikkun olam (repairing the world), as well as his entrepreneurial spirit.

At its core, the fund’s purpose is to support the good work that PJA alumni are doing in their local or global community. Alumni who see a need and envision a way to meet that need are encouraged to apply for money to finance their projects. Please note that travel expenses are generally not supported by this grant.

At this time the maximum grant amount is limited to $540 per project. Applications will be reviewed on an on-going basis, and grant recipients will be required to submit a grant report after the project has been completed.
